Peapod Meal Kit: Vegan General Tso's Tofu by Chef Chloe Coscarelli



1) Drain the tofu by placing it between paper towels and pressing down firmly for several minutes. Cut the drained tofu into one inch chunks and place in a large bowl with 2 tablespoons tamari and 4 tablespoons cornstarch. Toss to coat- the cornstarch will become goopy. Make the stir-fry sauce by whisking maple syrup, 2 tablespoons tamari, 1 tablespoon sriracha, orange juice, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. Tip: you can use a resealable plastic bag to coat the tofu. Place the ingredients in the bag, add the tofu and toss to coat. 2) In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When it shimmers, add half of the coated tofu and sear for about 3 minutes on each side, until crispy all over. Remove to a plate, add more oil if needed and cook remaining tofu. Tip: For crisper tofu cubes, don't flip them over too soon. Let each piece get nicely browned before flipping it to the other side. 3) Return all the tofu to the skillet and add the scallions, orange zest, garlic, and ginger. Cook for about 3 minutes, until the scallions begin to break down. Add the stir-fry sauce and reduce the heat to low. Cook for about 5 minutes more, until the sauce thickens. Prepare rice according to package directions. Serve tofu over rice and garnish with sesame seeds.
