General Tso’s Tofu .
For the Sauce
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
2 teaspoons cornstarch
For the General Tso's Tofu
1 (14 ounce) package extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
About 1/3 cup cornstarch
About 1/4 cup vegetable oil
5-10 dried red chile peppers cut in half*
2 scallions chopped, white and green parts separated
1 medium broccoli crown broken into florets
Sesame seeds and/or chopped peanuts
Whisk all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
Cut the tofu into 1-inch triangles (or cubes, or your favorite shape!). Place the cornstarch into a shallow bowl.
Generously coat the bottom of a large skillet with oil and place it over medium heat. Dredge each of the tofu triangles in the cornstarch, and then transfer them to the hot skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, until crisp. Transfer the tofu to a paper towel-lined plate.
If the skillet is dry at this point, add a splash more oil. Raise the heat to high. Add the chile peppers, white parts of scallions and broccoli. Stir-fry until the broccoli is tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Return the tofu to the skillet and add the sauce. Flip a few times to coat the broccoli and tofu with the sauce. Cook just until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and sprinkle with green parts of scallions, sesame seeds and/or peanuts. Divide onto plates and serve with rice.
