General Tao's Tofu

General Tao's Tofu

Okay, this isn't the healthiest recipe on the planet but when you have a craving for chewy tofu in that sweet, gooey, glistening sauce you find in every North Americanized, Chinese restaurant then this absolutely does the trick.

Of course I was out of vegetable stock and didn't have any green onions but the sauce still tasted great using water and a regular onion finely chopped.   The only thing I will do differently next time is cut the tofu into smaller bite-sized chunks.  One inch square pieces of tofu are too much for me in one mouthful especially when the tofu is firm.  Also, be sure to not crowd the pan when frying the tofu because the corn starch makes the pieces stick together.  You will find the recipe here at Vegweb.  Tasty.
