Adapted from a General Tso’s Chicken recipe in Men’s Health Magazine and posted on the Vegan Kitchen. The baked tofu is a great vehicle for the spicy-sweet sauce. Serve it over brown rice and tons of bright green steamed broccoli. Enjoy!

this turned out really well and was pretty easy. The sauce was the perfect consistency. I did add a bit more soy sauce out of personal preference.
