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!

Due to the nature of the kitchen on those kind of environments it is very hard to not have CC. They are obviously not confident that they are 100% gluten-free. Honestly I would not eat any any place like that due to CC issues. I had my share of so called gluten-free earlier on with my celiac in t...

I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale. It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad. It is on sale for...

Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a opti...

Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery sto...

So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contami...
