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!

Sounds great. Thank you!

I was thinking of trying it like 1tbsp maple syrup and upping the egg whites by 10-20g Should make a giant 9"pancake basically with maple flavoring. Not tried it yet but it should work. I was thinking making that version for giant pancake (to thin to pour into smaller ones) that you cook low and ...

I'm sorry that I can't lay my hands on it now but I did read a peer reviewed study on morbidity rates amongst non gluten-free compliant celiac patients that said that 1 slip up per month was linked to quite a scary increase in risk of serious complications up to and including cancer. That's ...

One thing that struck me when I lived in the States (pre gluten free) was that much of your supermarket bread wasn't great and it seemed very expensive in comparison to the other foods in my grocery trolley. It took me awhile to realise that the bread in the UK was subsidised via EU common agric...

Tried your recipe today and it's great! Thank you! Now I'd like to experiment a bit with the next one. I see you've suggested adding a sweetener such as maple. Is that maple syrup or some other form of maple sweetener?
