Tempeh Time: Vegan Hot Wings

Looking for something plant-based to serve on big game days? Turn your wings to tempeh! But wait, what’s tempeh? Tempeh is an Indonesian soy product produced by natural culturing and fermentation processes that bond the soybeans together into a patty form. It’s chewy, earthy, and absorbs whatever flavors you want to throw at it. To learn more about tempeh before making this recipe, check out our post about it!

3. Blend the Breading

In a food processor blend 1 1/3 cups of the rice cereal until it has powder-like consistency. Crush the remaining 1 1/3 cups of rice cereal in a bag and pour the crumbs into a shallow bowl with the processed cereal. Add the paprika and cayenne to the breading with a dash of salt and mix the ingredients together.

4. Bread the Tempeh

Once the tempeh is finished soaking in the baggie of buffalo sauce remove the slices in order to bread them. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper or aluminum foil. Roll each marinated piece of tempeh in the breading bowl and arrange the slices on the cookie sheet. Drizzle the remaining buffalo sauce over the breaded “wings” of tempeh and pop the pan into the oven for 15 minutes.

5. Wings!
