Buffalo Tempeh "Wings"

ChristianeChristiane Britton

I found this recipe on the internet, made a few modifications, threw it in the oven, and crossed my fingers.

Let me tell you - delicious. No, seriously. They’re delicious. Now I’m not getting crazy and saying meat eaters are going to eat this and instantly convert, but it’s seriously tasty. The texture is different, but good different. The panko crumbs on the outside really give it a crunchy texture, and there’s nothing a little wing sauce can’t make tasty. Although the directions look lengthy, it really doesn’t take more than 35-40 minutes to have these on the table. If you haven’t tried tempeh, let this be your first recipe. And if you have, then you’d be crazy for not trying this recipe. Now it’s your turn to give it the old college try.

    Bring 4 cups of water to boil over high heat. Meanwhile, remove tempeh from package. Slice into 8 strips. (If you are a first time tempheh eater and have texture issues, I recommend slicing into 10-12 strips) Once water is boiling, lower heat to medium high, add tempeh, and boil for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse with cool water.

    Set out 3 bowls. In one, pour in soy milk. In the second, combine flour and seasonings. In third bowl, add panko crumbs. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Place each strip in milk. Coat in flour mixture, then briefly re-dip into milk. Toss with panko crumbs, coating well. Set on slightly oiled baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tempeh strips. Once all are coated and on baking sheet, lightly spray all “wings” with cooking spray. Place into oven and bake for 10 minutes. Flip “wings” over and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

    While they are baking, place wing sauce ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Cover with Saran wrap and heat in microwave on medium high setting for a minute and a half. Remove from heat and whisk ingredients together.

    When wings are finished baking, toss with sauce. Serve immediately.

    Does this tempeh have a bad after taste? Because I prepared tempeh for the first time the other day and it had a bad after taste.
