Recipe

General Tso's chicken is a favorite take-away dish I love to make at home. However recently when a craving hit for this dish and we had a vegetarian friend staying with us for a few days, I decided to try a version with tofu and it turned out great. The key is making sure to press and dry your tofu before so it can get nice and crispy.
