The idea of making General Tso’s tofu sprouts from the request from diners who are looking for vegetarian dishes. It is a pan-fry tofu dish coated with the same sauce for General Tso’s chicken. The tofu soaks up the flavor like a sponge and makes it exceptionally flavorful.

I can't believe it! Just today I was looking up for recipes with tofu, because I bought some for the first time and I don't know how to cook it. Thank you! My problem is that at the supermarket in Italy I cannot find some Chinese ingredients, such as the wine and the vinegar and I need to find suitable substitutes for them…
