SRIRACHA ROASTED TOFU

Sriracha tofu is first marinated to infuse savory flavors and then roasted to a light golden-brown, then tossed in a slightly sweet and spicy sauce while it's still warm. This can be added to greens or rice with crunchy veggies and garnished with a squeeze of lime, toasted sesame seeds and scallions. V, GF.
