Crispy General Tso’s Tofu



Ingredients :

  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • divided
  • 1 (1/2 inch) piece fresh ginger
  • slightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • or more to taste
  • ½ (16 ounce) package extra-firm tofu
  • drained and pressed
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 green onions
  • sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts (Optional)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds (Optional)
  • Methods :

  • Whisk broth, soy sauce, hoisin, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, ginger, vinegar, brown sugar, white pepper, and red pepper flakes together in a small bowl. Set sauce aside.
  • Place remaining cornstarch in a resealable, zip-top plastic bag. Tear off bite-sized chunks of tofu and drop them into the bag. Shake until each piece is evenly coated. Sprinkle on cornstarch by hand, if needed, to coat each piece well.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add tofu pieces one by one and cook until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to move and turn the pieces until browned on all sides, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Pour out any remaining oil. Add the white parts of the green onions and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the sauce. Allow to heat and thicken, about 2 minutes. Return the tofu to the wok and toss to coat. Discard ginger. Garnish with green onion tops, peanuts, and sesame seeds.
