Inspired by a pit-stop on my recent road trip to the Pacific Northwest I bring you Vegan Southern Fried Tofu.  The wife-unit were pretty amazed by the food cart phenomenon going on in Oregon.  And by amazed I mean insanely jealous and confused as to why this hasn’t taken off in Southern California.  WTF?!   Portland of course seemed like the epicenter of Food-cart-opia, but this recipe was inspired by a stop at a food cart in Eugene, OR that was selling vegan soul food.  I was impressed and, ‘lettuce be cereal’ (‘let us be serious’ for the unhip amongst us)….Why not make MORE fried vegan happy hour deliciousness inspired by soul food?!  And so began my foray into Southern Fried Tofu.

I’ve seen plenty of vegan fried “chicken” recipes out there including a lot of takes on that KFC Double-Down miracle so it seems like this vegan recipe topic may have been done to death.  I had to do it though.  If for nothing else to prove that I could.  And do it…I did.  Based off of feedback from wife-unit, two things became immediately clear about this recipe; 1. It is wife-unit’s favorite Vegan Happy Hour recipe to date, and 2. I would be getting lucky for having such success with it.

Vegan Southern Fried Tofu

  • 16 oz block of super firm tofu (I used a garden vegetable seasoned block for some extra flavor)
  • 3 eggs worth of egg replacer
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup of Texas Pete hot sauce (basically an entire small bottle)
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Extra salt, pepper, and some garlic powder for seasoning
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Heat the oil to 350 degrees.

Cut the tofu block into 1/4-1/3 inch wide slices (cut along the long side of the block) and season lightly with the extra salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Mix the egg replacer, water and Texas Pete into a small/medium sized bowl.

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper into a shallow baking dish.  Stir these well!

Dip the tofu slices into the liquid mixture then move into the flour mixture and coat well.  Fry the tofu slices after they have been battered for about 5-7 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy (we all love crispy).

Enjoy by themselves or with baked beans, corn bread, slaw and BBQ sauce.    MMMMMMMmmmmmmm.
