If there is one thing I crave on the weekends, it’s a fun vegan item like burgers or chicken tenders! I typically love to make everything from scratch, but there are so many good options today that it’s hard to desire a homemade option. I solidly believe though, with just about all foods, homemade is always better!
When it comes to tofu, it’s either you love it or hate it. If you hate it, it’s typically due to your preparation method not being effective. I personally love tofu in all ways, but the method that proves to be such a game changer is, freezing! Freezing allows the tofu to take on a animal protein like texture and is just such a more memorable experience. If you have a lil extra time, simply slice and throw it in the freezer to keep for when a craving strikes.
When thinking of the next best tofu creation since I’m hooked on freezing, I knew we had to do a chicken tenders! All I can say is, wow, so good! I thought about air frying, but you won’t get the same texture that mirrors a traditional chicken sandwich. If you’re worried about excess oils, post frying you can place it in the air fryer or even the following day and they naturally come out!
