Spicy Tempeh Wings

The Big Game has come and gone, but the ultimate party dish can be served any time of year. Tofurky’s 5 Grain Tempeh is cut into pieces, tossed with a little oil, and roasted to crisp perfection, then tossed with buffalo hot sauce, cider vinegar, and vegan butter. Serve with the required celery sticks and vegan blue cheese for the cool down.
