My favorite answer to takeout is this general tso’s tofu with cauliflower recipe. It’s tastier and plant-friendlier than typical carry-out Chinese food. And while it’s definitely not as quick or simple, I promise that preparing it is completely worth the effort. Plus, you can prep much of it in advance.
If you enjoy making an easy stir fry and you like peanuts, then you need this simple spicy peanut seitan in your life! And if you like high-flavored recipes, you need this in your life immediately!
I’ve been preparing sooo many Mediterranean-style eats these days … so, I made this totally-not-Mediterranean General Tso’s-inspired Tempeh with Broccoli Florets & Stems. It totally solved my craving for something different!
There’s no need to order take-out when you can cook up this flavor-packed kung pao tempeh stir-fry at home! You’ll love all of the hearty textures in the stir-fry thanks to bell peppers, bok choy, tempeh, scallions, and peanuts. And if you’re a fan of ginger or garlic or both, you’ll enjoy plenty of that here, too. Whisk the kung pao stir-fry sauce (or, just call it “awesome sauce!”) in advance to get it to the table fast.
Sorry peanuts! I turned your Asian-style peanut noodles into pistachio butter noodles. But, my tastebuds are not sorry at all! The pistachio flavor worked beautifully in this udon noodle dish. You’ll find a couple other special twists here, too. The jasmine green tea creates a surprisingly fragrant note to the sauce. And the no-sugar-added fruit spread provides just the right amount of sweet balance to the saltiness of the tamari.
