General Tso's Sheet Pan Tofu
- 1 (14 ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained
- ¼ cup tapioca flour
- 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
- 1½ teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, divided
- ⅓ cup low-sodium vegetable stock
- 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 2 cups steamed white rice, to serve (optional)
- Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet or large baking dish.
- Slice tofu block into ½-inch slabs; cut each slap on the diagonal to make triangles. Layer tofu pieces into a clean, absorbent dish towel. Set something heavy (like a skillet with a can or two of beans) on the tofu to press as much water from the tofu as possible, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Whisk tapioca flour, garlic powder, and ginger together in a bowl; add tofu and toss to coat. Tap each piece gently to remove loose flour mixture. Lay coated tofu into prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
- Drizzle about half the sesame oil over the tofu.
- Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
- While the tofu bakes, stir remaining sesame oil, vegetable stock, soy sauce, vinegar, tomato sauce, sugar, and sriracha into the remaining flour mixture.
- Add broccoli to the baking sheet. Drizzle sauce over the tofu and broccoli.
- Return to oven to bake until the broccoli is bright green and the sauce has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to prevent anything from sticking and burning on the bottom of the pan.
- Serve with steamed rice.
Can't find tapioca flour? Use cornstarch instead to get an extra-crispy coating on the tofu. If you like, swap out the broccoli for other quick-roasting vegetables. Try green beans, sugar snap peas or baby bok choy. Serve with brown rice or quinoa for more nutritional value.
What others are saying
Katie Hason says:
This sheet pan dinner was fantastic! The sauce drizzled over the tofu and broccoli was my favorite. This was my first time using tofu, so pressing out the water was a little tricky for me, but the method using the cans worked perfect. Flawless recipe!
Laura Griffin says:
This General Tso's tofu meal is so good, I swear I am not a vegetarian or vegan, but eating this makes me never want to eat chicken General Tso again. No lie! My mom and I shared this dish together and we are both obsessed. The sauce is perfect and delicious! I used to be afraid to cook with tofu, but not anymore!
