General Tso's Tofu finished plate

General Tso’s Tofu Phooey

The fact that I renamed this meal kit from General Tso's Tofu to General Tso's Tofu Phooey says it all.


Tofu is Phoo Phoo Phooey
  • Flavor (5 = best)
  • Prep Time (5 = short and easy)
  • Difficulty Level (5 = easiest)
  • Cleanup (5 = quickest)


Let’s start with the positives of this dish:

1. The sauce is delicious.
2. The dogs got their bellies full.

I was anxious to try tofu. I’d heard bad things, but hey, I’m adventurous, right?

So what was the tofu like?

Kinda like this…

Tofu tastes like eating an eraser

Yeah. I imagine eating a big pink eraser would be really similar to the experience of eating tofu. Yum?? Nah. More like Yuk! Or better yet…

Tofu Phooey!

Eating tofu feels like eating rubber. Tasteless rubber. Funky in your mouth rubber.

Ok, so now that we know the tofu really sucked, I have to admit that the dogs thought the tofu was a gift made especially for them. Lucy, our oldest, the Pekingese, was especially fond of it. We picked out all the tofu for them, and we just ate the rest of the dish. That by itself was pretty good actually. The sauce and ginger gave it all its flavor. But all together, this dish was a royal dud. Skip it!
