For the most part, I’m not into fake meat, but when I lived in the US, I’d once in a while buy a box of frozen veggie buffalo tenders from Trader Joe’s. I’d eat them on a sub roll with iceberg lettuce and a whole bunch of bleu cheese dressing!
I miss those sandwiches almost as much as I miss Taco Bell and Gardenburger Riblets. There’s not much in the way of fake meat here. One store sporadically sells Quorn, but other than that, I’m left to my own devices.
The other week, I could not stop thinking about those veggie buffalo wings. It was not going away. This was an issue on a couple of levels:
1) There’s no way I’m finding frozen vegetarian buffalo tenders on this continent.
2) There’s no way I’m finding Frank’s RedHot Sauce in this country.
Necessity was again the mother of invention, and my homemade tempeh buffalo wings were born…
1/4 t garlic powder
The sauce is a riff on various hot sauce and buffalo wing sauce recipes from around the internet, adapted to what I had on hand. It makes enough for about 3 batches of 4 “wings”.
