General Tao's Tofu

I've made this recipe a couple times now. We really like it. It goes well with stir-fry or rice.

Cut into 1-inch cubes:
1 package extra-firm tofu

Coat with:
Egg replacer equivalent to one egg. (I used 1 Tbsp. soy flour and 2 Tbsp. water)

Then coat with:
1/2 cup cornstarch

Add the cornstarch a little at a time, stirring in between. Make sure the cornstarch coats the tofu and doesn't clump in the bottom of the bowl. Fry tofu cubes in a little oil for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the following sauce. Fry for about 2 minutes:
1-2 Tbsp. oil
3 green onions, sliced,
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 of a red or yellow pepper, chopped

Mix:
3/4 cup water
1 Tbsp. chicken style seasoning
2 Tbsp. Braggs
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes (increase if you like it hotter)

Add to the fried vegetables above and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and pour over tofu. Mix.
