Just wanted to share with you this recipe for General Tso’s Tofu that I tried recently, from the Vegetarian Times March issue. I am a huge fan of General Tso’s Tofu, if it is on the menu it’s the first thing I always try at any new Chinese restaurant that we go to or order delivery from. The sticky, sweet, slightly spicy combination is one of my all time favorite comfort food dishes. This recipe gives you all that sticky sweet gloriousness without the deep-fried shame spiral, as the tofu is marinated and then baked until it is crispy and browned on the outside and tender on the inside. You need to allot a little bit of time for pressing and then marinading the tofu, but it is well worth the advanced planning for this dish. Served alongside simply steamed broccoli and rice, it is a perfectly satisfying meal, and if you cook Asian food regularly, chances are you will have most or all of these ingredients already.
I just realized that I’m posting back to back tofu dishes, but what can I say? We eat a lot of tofu in this house. This dish is such a good thing, so seriously, make it and enjoy!
Again, find the recipe here.
