For years I've been eating tofu in Chinese restaurants, but I had actually been a food blogger for at least three or four years before I ever tried cooking it myself. Once I did, I was delighted to discover how easy it was to turn out an absolutely delicious tofu dish at home, and since then I've had my eye out for new ideas with tofu. When I saw this recipe for General Tso's Tofu from Appetite for China, I immediately asked Diana if I could feature it for Meatless Monday. Not only does this look amazing, but it's easy to make and uses easy-to-find Asian ingredients that are available in every supermarket. Whether you're a vegetarian or are just trying to have more meatless meals, this one is definitely a winner!
