General Tso’s Soy Free Tofu

I cant even remember how many times I have made this dish. It’s so easy and delicious. Savory, salty, and pairs well with so many things to complete a meal. Or simply enjoy it with some white rice or into a stir fry. Sometimes I just make double batches and add it into my dinners to complete a meal.

I made this dish using my Soy free Burmese Tofu alternative Recipe.

You can coat the Burmese Tofu in cornstarch. I actually like to use an equal parts corn starch and corn meal dry mix. Then pan fry it in oil for an additional crunch or leave this step it out, which is still super enjoyable.

I suggest using 3 day old Burmese Tofu for the best results as it will be most Firm by then but simply using your Burmese Tofu the next day is great as well. Either way you can coat these in corn starch or Masa (Corn Meal) or any starch you desire and pan fry them in oil before you add them to the sauce so they are super crispy, crunchy and delicious. In this video I skipped the frying and coating and just went straight to the sauce. Its great either way!

If you want a lower sodium variation, then decrease the Coconut Amino’s, Increase the water and increase the Agave.
You can make the Tofu crispy by coating it in a 50/50 mix of cornstarch and corn meal (masa) if you don’t have masa near you just Cornstarch is fine.
