    General Tso's Tofu (Gluten-Free)


    This recipe comes to us from "pinkpei77" in the Gluten-Free Forum.

    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.

  • About Me

    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. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
