General Tao Tofu
Another way to enjoy General tao without eating too greasy!
This is one of my favorite recipe and I don't know anyone who didn't enjoy it!
Prep: 25 min
Cooking: 15 min
1/4 cup (60 ml) vegetable broth
1/4 cup (55 g) brown sugar
2 tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
2 tbsp (30 ml) rice vinegar
2 tbsp (30 ml) ketchup
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp (5 ml) sambal oelek
1 lb (450 g) firm tofu, cubed and patted dry
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup (60 ml) canola oil
4 green onions, finely chopped
1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Set aside.
In a large bowl, dredge the tofu in the cornstarch. Shake to remove any excess and set aside on a plate.
In a wok over high heat, heat the oil. Fry half of the tofu at a time until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Using a slotted spoon, remove the tofu from the wok and drain on paper towels.
In the same wok, fry the onions, ginger and garlic for 1 to 2 minutes. Add oil, if needed. Add the sauce and bring to a boil. Add the tofu and cook, stirring to warm through, and coat thoroughly with the sauce. Serve with rice and broccoli.
