General Tso's Tofu is one of my preferred dishes, for the most part since I love Chinese take out, however in some cases it's elusive an extraordinary variant at Chinese caf├ęs. It is anything but an issue however, in light of the fact that it's extremely simple to make Veggie lover General Tso's Tofu at home.

It's extraordinary knowing precisely what fixings go into the recipe (no MSG like a great deal of eateries include), and it's significantly tasty! General Tso's Tofu is the ideal vegan variant of General Tso's Chicken.

For General Tso's Tofu, I like the tofu to be firm. This implies you have the choice to sear or heat it, yet I like to utilize a technique called 'shallow' browning, which means the entire item isn't submerged in oil; essentially simply the base and you turn flip it around on each side to get the ideal freshness.

For the Tofu

  • 1 brick extra firm tofu
  • 3-4 TBS cornstarch
  • 1-2 TBS canola or vegetable oil

For the sauce

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 TBS hoisin sauce
  • 3 TBS rice vinegar
  • 3 TBS ketchup
  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 shakes red pepper flakes (optional, 2 shakes turns out pretty mild..add more for more spice or you can leave out for less)
  • 1 TBS sesame oil
  • 4 green onions , chopped
  • 3 TBS fresh ginger , finely chopped


  1. Drain tofu of excess water pressing between the counter and heavy object. **I use 2 clean kitchen towels, one folded up the size of the tofu brick on the bottom (place under tofu), and then one on top. Then I place my cast iron pan on top of the top towel, and sometimes place something else in the pan to hold it down. You do not want the tofu to collapse, if it's breaking take some weight off. Let sit 20 minutes. to drain**
  2. While waiting for tofu, mix together the first 7 ingredients and set aside.
  3. Heat a skillet on medium with about a 1/2 inch of vegetable oil inside. While heating, slice tofu into 1/2" slices, then cut each slice into thirds. Coat each cube lightly with cornstarch and then place into pan until browned and crispy. You may have to turn up the heat under the pan a bit. Remove from frying pan and set aside on paper towels.
  4. Wipe pan clean with paper towel and add sesame oil, onions, and chopped ginger. Cook about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add sauce mixture to pan, bring to a boil, and simmer about 2 minutes. Add tofu back to mixture, toss to coat. Top with green onions if desired.
