Vegan General Tso’s Tofu

When I was in high school, I worked part time at a Chinese restaurant and when things were slow, I was able to learn a bit about how to cook Chinese food. General Tso’s is one of my favorite dishes and even though getting take out is sometimes easier, it’s nice to see the dish from start to finish. Hope you enjoy!
