Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the sweet potatoes with the vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper on a baking sheet. Bake, flipping halfway through, until lightly browned and tender, about 30 minutes.

Whisk the buttermilk and hot sauce in a shallow dish. Add the tofu, turning to coat; marinate 10 minutes. Whisk the ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar in a bowl; set aside. Whisk the flour, the remaining 1 tablespoon paprika and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl; stir in 1 tablespoon of the marinade to make clumps.

Heat 2 inches vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. Dip the tofu in the flour mixture, turning to coat, dip back in the marinade, then re-dip in the flour to coat with the clumpy bits; transfer to a plate. Fry the tofu in two batches, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and crisp, 3 minutes. Transfer to a rack; season with salt. Serve with the sweet potatoes, coleslaw and ketchup sauce.
