General Tso Tofu

Cut 1 block of Tofu into cubes or slices, marinate in a bit of Tamari for at least an hour or two… (I often forget this but it does add flavour)

Coat with a bit of Corn Starch and Fry in a bit of peanut oil until crispy… put aside…

Make sauce:

  • 5 tbsp Tamari
  • 3-4 cloves of  garlic (minced)
  • minced ginger (about an inch)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 5 tbsp of hoisin sauce
  • 3 tsp rice vinegar
  • zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tsp garlic chile paste

Stir Fry, in a bit of oil, 1-2 chopped onions and then add a clove or two of minced garlic (you can also add a bit of garlic chile paste for some spice), stir fry for a min or two and then add broccoli florets (about 2 heads) and cook until just tender but still with a bit of crunch.  (you can also add other veggies of course) Put aside.

Add sauce to wok  and simmer until thickened a bit.. add veggies and tofu back in and stir enough to coat…

Serve with Rice and garnish with sliced green onions…
