Get ready to be blown away by this recipe. Grated tofu is the star protein in this dish, creating crispy bits that are reminiscent of cooked, vegan ground meat – but with a single ingredient you can feel good about. And with the delicious flavours of General Tao – sweet, tangy, and mildly spicy – this dish is sure to become a new favourite. Try it, you’ll be soy happy you did.


Ingredients
Preparation
  1. In a bowl, whisk together seasoning, water, ketchup, and soy sauce. Set aside.  
  2. Using a paper towel or clean kitchen towel, gently squeeze as much liquid from the tofu as possible. Using a box grater, grate tofu over large holes. It’s OK if some of the block crumbles.  
  3. In Wok, heat 12 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add half the grated tofu and season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry until crisp and golden, 5 min. Remove from wok and place in a bowl or on a plate. Heat remaining 12 tbsp oil and repeat process with remaining tofu. Once the second batch of tofu is golden, return first batch of tofu to wok.  
  4. Add edamame and snow peas. Stir-fry until snow peas are tender-crisp, 1 min.  
  5. Turn off the heat, add sauce, and stir gently to coat.  
  6. Divide between four bowls, top with spinach, and serve with rice noodles, if desired.
Tips

This dish isn’t particularly saucy—if you prefer a saucier stir-fry, simply add a bit more water or vegetable broth, 1 tbsp at a time, to the sauce once you’ve added it to the Wok.
