General Tso's Sauce

The majority of us were not born vegan, and as a result we still have a soft spot for certain meals.

General Tso's Vegan Chicken anyone??

The Sauce that gives the meal its great flavor is actually quite easy to make, and goes great over vegetables or any meat substitute you would like.

General Tso's Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp tomato paste (or substitute ketchup for a slightly sweeter sauce)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tsp chili sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp sugar
Get a bowl, and mix together the tomato paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, chili sauce, sesame oil, and sugar

Heat a large skillet and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of peanut oil.  Pour in the sauce and stir until thickened, about 1 minute. 

This great sauce can be served over fried tofu, or tossed with broccoli and served with rice.


  1. what is wrong with this recipe?! it is very very wrong! i followed the directions and the concoction cooled off within a few minutes to form a nicely solidified ROCK. it is very stuck to my plate. very wrong.

  2. Boiling corn syrup = candy. Just a guess!

  3. Recipe is updated, sorry about the proportions on the previous. Hope you enjoy, it's a great sauce.
