I am in love with fake chicken nuggets and fake chicken strips. Whenever I’m near a Yard House I beg to go there so I can order their Gardein Chicken Tenders doused in their amazing honey mustard sauce. It tastes like heaven. The frozen Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders are a big favorite of mine as well for a ridiculously easy meal at home. Because of my devotion to fake chicken tenders I have had my eye on this recipe for crispy breaded tofu strips from Oh She Glows. She includes a recipe for homemade sweet potato fries but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.
I served the crispy breaded tofu strips with Alexia brand sweet potato waffle fries and my homemade honey mustard sauce based off of this recipe. It’s questionably veganized in that I use Vegenaise instead of mayonaise but there is still honey in there. I’m a bit of a honey mustard snob and this sauce is perfect in my opinion.
To be honest, while the texture of the of the tofu strips was great, I found them to be a little bland. The honey mustard sauce was a necessity for every bite. I would suggest either adding a lot more spices to the breadcrumb mixture or making these on a day when you just need an excuse to eat a lot of honey mustard sauce.
