Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup [1¾ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal for garnish.
  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed; cut the beans into 2-inch lengths.
  • In a small bowl, using a fork or whisk, mix together the arrowroot powder, General Tso’s sauce base, and ½ cup [¾ cup] water.
  • In a medium bowl, season the rice flour with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes. Pat the tofu dry with paper towels. Transfer to the bowl with the rice flour and toss to coat; shake off any excess.

3

Cook the stir-fry

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the tofu and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the green beans and as many whole dried chiles as you like and cook until the beans are crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Stir the General Tso’s arrowroot slurry to recombine, then add the slurry and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, toss the ingredients to coat, and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, discard the chiles, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the rice to individual bowls and top with the tofu and green beans. Garnish with the scallions and serve.
