I used the following:
4-8oz sliced mushrooms
Press extra moisture out by placing a heavy pot or pan on a paper towel wrapped brick of extra firm tofu. Next, dip in egg wash and lightly dredge in corn starch. Heat a frying pan with 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil and lightly fry tofu on all sides. Once golden, pour in a light layer of General Tso’s Sauce to coat. Plate tofu with your delish fried rice and enjoy =)
So, How was it?
Amazing! Frying the tofu in egg and very little oil gave it this awesome french-toast-esque crust that had me running back to the store to buy more tofu. Believe it or not — this was my first time cooking tofu by myself! And I love that it came out just as fabulous as my favorite restaurant’s tofu! The rice was super flavorful and had so many veggies in it that I felt super satisfied. Color? CHECK! Variety? Check! Delish Flavorful Veggies? DOUBLE CHECK! This one’s going to wind up on the weekly menu again super soon.
If you’re feeling feisty – try the General Tso’s Tofu with my Quinoa Fried Rice!
