    arielleilani's Note:

    This is the most amazing recipe I've ever found online. It's the #1 recipe on VegWeb.com, and for good reason. All credit must go to "rubybean77", who originally posted it in 2003. After reading all the reviews and making it myself, I have altered her recipe slightly by doubling the sauce ingredients, and cutting the sugar a bit. The cooking time was an estimate, and I apologize if it's way off. So if you like less sauce, or a really sweet sauce, then you can definitely adjust accordingly. I use extra firm tofu that's been frozen, thawed, and squeezed dry; I think it gives the best texture. Serve it over rice and your favorite stir-fry veggies, and you've got the perfect vegan dinner. Enjoy!!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      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.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in pan and fry tofu pieces until golden. Drain oil.
    3. 3
      Heat 6 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 4 Tablespoons water with 2 Tablespoon cornstarch and pour into mixture stirring well. Add fried tofu and coat evenly.
    4. 4
      Serve immediately with stir-fry veggies over your choice of rice.
