Buffalo Baked Tofu Wraps

It’s no secret that I love anything spicy or covered in hot sauce.  I have freely admit that many many times here.  I especially love the buffalo sauce flavor.  Even when I ate chicken I really only ever got buffalo wings for the sauce.  No lie.

So when I got this bottle of Buffalo Marinade in the mail from Foodbuzz as part of the tastemaker program I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!


The marinade was great, but if you can’t find this specific brand, honestly you can use any brand or even make your own buffalo sauce to marinate in.  I’ve tried the Franks Red Hot brand of buffalo sauce and it’s fantastic as well!  And you’re especially lucky today because you’re also getting a ranch dressing recipe!

Buffalo Baked Tofu Wraps with Ranch Dressing (makes 4 wraps)
(Print this recipe!)

1 package of extra firm tofu, pressed (I like the kind that comes already pressed- the Wildwood Organic is my fave)
1 bottle of your favorite buffalo sauce (you’ll only use about half of the bottle)
4 Whole wheat wraps of your choice
ranch dressing (recipe follows)

Slice your tofu into 8-10 slices (depending on how big your block of tofu is)


Place sliced tofu into a ziplock bag or Tupperware container and pour half the bottle of marinade in.

Let the tofu hang out for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spritz a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Take tofu out of the marinade and shake off the excess marinade before placing each slice in the pan.

Place into oven and bake for 7-10 minutes on each side.


Slice or cube each plank of tofu so that it will fit better into your wrap.

To assemble your wraps, take your tortilla and top with lettuce, a drizzle of ranch dressing, your tofu slices or cubes, and top it off with a drizzle of the leftover buffalo sauce marinade (it’s okay- it’s not meat so you don’t have to worry about food poisoning from this. In fact, you can keep the leftover marinade in the fridge and reuse it!)



Wrap and roll!!!



And here’s the ranch dressing recipe for your wraps! (you can use bottled if you want, but I promise this is WAY better!)

Ranch Dressing
(Print this recipe!)

1 cup low-fat Vegenaise (or you can use yogurt)
1/3 cup non-dairy milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
big pinch of salt, to taste
big squeeze of lemon juice (about 1 Tablespoon)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley


Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

If you want your dressing a little thinner, add a little more non-dairy milk.  If you want it a little thicker, add a little more vegenaise.



I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!  And P.S. the leftover buffalo tofu makes a wicked salad- just toss on top of your fav salad with a few spoonful’s each of the ranch and the buffalo sauce!  NOM!


Playin’ with pee

That sounds so gross doesn’t it?  LOL!  Well, it kind of is.  This is what we did in chem lab this morning.  Played with pee.  More specifically, we did some urinalysis tests.  We were testing for pH levels, glucose, proteins, ketone bodies, and a few other things that I don’t really remember, haha.  It was sort of interesting, but not really as interesting as it could have been.

Oh, and the pee was ours!  I think it was synthetic.  At least I hope it was!

Not really much going on around here lately.  Just trying to make my brain stay alive enough to finish out the semester- I totally have spring fever!  ALL I want to do lately is sit out on the patio and drink coffee and play with my little plant garden.  When the heck did I turn into an 80 year old woman?!

One more week then two days of finals then SUMMER BREAK!!!  My brain was done some time last month though, so the next week and a half are going to be pure torture!

Speaking of torture, I’m working on an insanely fun summer project for myself and I. Can’t. Wait.  But I have to keep it a secret for a little longer and it’s torturing me!!!!  I hate keeping secrets- I’m awful at it!  Bah!  It’s gonna be fun though and I am so excited to announce it, but I have to get my veggies in a row first before I can say anything!

Speaking of fun news (don’t you LOVE all of the smooth transitions today?!) I have something I can actually tell!  I’m going to get to be a contributing health editor for foodbuzz!!  Their health section is being launched tomorrow and I’ve already been getting some of my past posts tagged and ready to be used!  It’s not a super big thing, but it’ll be fun and I’ll get to put it on my resume and it will look great on my internship application!  Plus maybe I’ll be able to get a little more traffic to my silly little blog! 

Guess that’s all for now- I’ve got a ton of great recipes to post soon, plus some really cool info on health, protein, soy, dairy, and more!  Stay tuned!!!
