    Vegetable Oil
    Vegetable Broth
    Soy Sauce
    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 isn't 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 3/4 cup cornstarch over tofu and coat completely. Watch out that the cornstarch doesn't clump up at the bottom of the bowl.

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.

Serve immediately with steamed broccoli over your choice of rice.

  • I really liked the sauce, but the tofu was another story. I like my tofu cut thin and cooked crispy and chewy. The tofu in this recipe did not turn out that way. Next time I will bake the tofu until crisp and then add to sauce just before serving(that will save on fat and calories too). - 9/20/07

  • This was incredible!! Tasted exactly like General Tao's chicken. I felt bad for eating something fried, but it didn't affect my weight loss, and my husband loved how delicious tasting I was able to make tofu! - 7/23/07
