General Tso’s Tofu with Quinoa, Broccoli and Green Asparagus by plantbased.traveler 🌱 Who’d love to try this bowl?
For the tofu:
1 block extra firm tofu
1 heaping tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp onion and 1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cooking oil (I used grape seed oil)
1/4 cup general tso sauce * (see below)
As well as:
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 head of broccoli
1 large handful of tender green asparagus
Sesame seeds (Makes 2 servings)
Cut tofu into big chunks and add them to a bowl together with the cornstarch, spices and oil. Toss carefully until evenly coated.
Spread cubes on a lined baking sheet and bake them at 375 F/190 C for 30-45 min (depending on size and desired level of “crispness”), giving them a stir once or twice in between to ensure even baking.
Add the baked tofu chunks to a non stick pan, pour sauce over it and stir on medium heat for a couple minutes until pieces are slightly sticky and caramelized.
Serve over some fluffy quinoa and sautéed or steamed veggies, sprinkle a few sesame seeds on top and enjoy 💚🍲🥢
*To make this dish healthier you can either use a home made sauce (less sugar👌🏼) or when using a store bought one make sure the sauce is vegan friendly (some brands may contain oyster sauce for example)
