Sizzling Sriracha Butter Tofu


The most delicious sizzling tofu! A very light and crispy batter, pan fried to perfection, with a hot and sweet buttery sauce. A delicious recipe you can whip up in 15 minutes with just a few simple ingredients!

I love serving this with rice and veggies, but it would be delicious in a wrap or even on top of a salad to spice it up a little :). Try this recipe out and let me know what you think! I love when you tag me in your stories so I can repost them on Instagram!
