I like Chinese food, but sometimes it’s hard to find a good place to eatit and after having all this ¨MSG¨, I often have a big headache. So After I had a General Tao’s chicken one time, I thought, “Why not make this recipe with tofu?” The meat is really the vehicle for the sauce, is not it?
I knew I wanted to have a good crunchy tofu. I then looked for different ways to fry tofu, in this recipe of the general Tao Tofu, I used a method called “shallow” frying, which means that the whole object is not submerged in oil. It was easy and it worked well. This tofu was so good, even without the sauce. This is by far the best replica of any Chinese food I have made. You can certainly use this sauce on chicken, vegetables. You can also change the amount of spices by increasing or reducing red pepper flakes.
Good recipes that accompanies this tofu general Tao:
