Back when I was still eating meat, I loved kung pao chicken so when I saw this tofu version, I wanted to try it out and see what it was like !
I liked the flavor of this dish and the addition of the water chestnuts (gives a great crunchy texture to the dish) but I do wish the tofu had more texture. In the recipe they say to just add it in with the current ingredients and there’s just not enough space or time for any of those cubes of tofu to get seared. Other than that though, it was a good dish ! If you ever get around to trying this yourself, when they call for 3 small green chili peppers, I used serrano peppers and left the seeds in. I also used pre-made broth rather than make the one recommended, made an extra batch of the tofu marinade to be added directly into the skillet, used reduced-sodium soy sauce and toasted sesame oil and forgot to add the sugar.
This recipe came from The Spicy Plant-Based Cookbook.
I was not paid in any form to promote this recipe or the cookbook.
Take care y’all !
