I’m not a meat eater, so I try new things with Tofu all the time. I take a meat dish and substitute the meat for Tofu. Sometime it works, so times……not so much. hahahaha
Last night I tried General Tso chicken
1 pound Tofu
some veggies, how every many you like. I just throw in what ever I have in the refrigerator.
1 package of General Tso season mix. You can get this at any grocery store for like $.60 a pack.
1 TBsp Soy Sauce
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cups water
2 or 3 Tbsp of flour
4Tbsp of oil
1 cup of cooked rice
simple huh? hahahah
So, you cut the tofu in chucks, however you like them.
Next put some flour in a bowl and coat the tofu,
It is a good idea to start your rice cooking at this point.
place in hot oiled pan to fry (this takes like a minuet or two on each side) remove from pan.
While the tofu is frying, mix all the other ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
Once you have cooked all the tofu, add the sauce and add tofu and let simmer for a minuet or so to thicken, (this happens fast, so watch it). I like to steam my veggies and add them at the end.
You can cook them when you put the sauce in the pan. It was really good and I enjoyed my dinner.
