General Tso's Tofu (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from "pinkpei77" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
1 container firm tofu
1 egg substitute for 1 egg
1 cup cornstarch
Vegetable oil for frying
4 chopped green onions
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2/3 cup vegetable broth/stock
2 tablespoon s gluten-free soy sauce
4 tablespoon s sugar
Red pepper flakes ( to taste)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
Drain, dry and cut tofu into 1 inch chunks. You can freeze tofu the night before to get a more chicken-like consistency, but it isnt necessary. Mix the egg replacer as specified on the box and add an additional 3 tablespoons water. Dip tofu in egg replacer/water mixture and coat completely. Sprinkle ¾ cup cornstarch over tofu and coat completely.
Heat oil in pan and fry tofu pieces until golden. Drain oil.
Heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in pan on medium heat. Add green onions, ginger and garlic, cook for about 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn garlic. Add vegetable stock, soy sauce, sugar, red pepper and vinegar. Mix 2 tablespoons water with 1 tablespoon cornstarch and pour into mixture stirring well. Add fried tofu and coat evenly.
