    Ingredients:
    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
    Steamed broccoli

    Directions:
    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.

    I was having my first bruncheon at my house for some of my closest friends and decided to make this dish as one of my girlfriends has Celiac disease. In short, this dish was a hit! Everyone loved it! I now make this for myself and family.

     

    Thank you Scott!

    I don't like tofu but this was awesome! I also made it with chicken and played around with a few more spices. Great recipe! Thanks.

    Celiac.com 09/24/2013 - Here's a quick, tasty way to enjoy Thai-style coconut curry on the barbecue. I like to prepare the marinade a day ahead of time, and let the pork marinate overnight, but they're pretty good with just a 30-minute soak before grilling. This is a great way to use up any extra pork chops.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound pork loin or pork tenderloin, cubed ¼ cup coconut milk 1 tablespoon each Thai curry paste 1 tablespoon lime juice 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon sugar 3 tablespoons peanut butter ½ teaspoon red chili sauce ¼ cup cilantro, minced 1 teaspoon garlic po...
