Move over, KFC ... with your nasty, cruelty-infested Double Down. There's a new sammich in town, and it's tasty and vegan. Meet (or if you've been a long-time Crunk follower, re-introduce yourself to) the Fried Tofu "Chicken" Wafflewich:
Yep, it's another cookbook tester, but I promise its worth waiting for. I developed this ode to Southern-style chicken and waffles back in 2008. But I'm testing and testing and testing again. This filling all-in-one meal combines my Southern Fried Tofu "Chicken" (which is also delicious on its own) with my Savory Sandwich Waffle and a special maple-dijon sauce. It's hefty and satisfying and somewhat sinful thanks to the beer-battered fried 'fu.
On an unrelated note, I wanted to show y'all my poor puppy's injured paw:
Poor Datsun! He was staying with a friend while I was at Bonnaroo last weekend, and the friend took him to the White River in Arkansas. Little did she know, Datsun is actually part fish. He loves to swim more than anything in the world ... more than his favorite ball ... more than belly rubs ... probably even more than he loves me!
While my fish-dog was swimming, he managed to cut his paw on a sharp rock in the water. He bled so much that my friend had to take him to the animal ER. He had emergency paw surgery and got quite a few stitches. Of course, Datsun acts like the paw doesn't phase him. No limping and lots of playing.
