General Tso’s Tofu

Back when I ate meat my go-to Chinese takeout order was General Tso’s. I used to crave for it for a few years after going vegetarian and came up with an alternative using tofu.

Ingredients

  • Extra Firm Tofu
  • Broccoli
  • 1 Carrots
  • 2 Large Garlic Gloves
  • General Tso Stir Fry Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cornstarch
  • Olive or Canola Oil

4 servings

STEPS

  1. Remove excess water from tofu using paper towels or clean reusable dish towels
  2. Place tofu between towels and press gently (you may have to do this a few times until excess moisture is gone)
  3. Chop broccoli into florets, carrots and garlic
  4. Cut dried tofu into cubes
  5. In small bowl or ziplock bag add a cup of cornstarch, salt and pepper
  6. Coat tofu cubes with cornstarch mix
  7. Use a large pan filled with enough oil to fry tofu cubes
  8. Fry until browned on all sides
  9. Place fried tofu cubes on plate with towels to drain excess oil
  10. Grab a sauté pan to mix everything
  11. Add a small amount of 1 teaspoon of oil to pan + chopped garlic on medium heat
  12. Add broccoli florets, chopped carrots and tofu cubes
  13. Pour in General Tso Stir Fry Sauce
  14. Season with pepper, garlic powder and salt to your liking!
