Super yummy and easy tofu stir fry in orange sauce. You can add any combination of vegetables that you wish (you might want to double the sauce part, though) and serve over rice (or noodles).

Recipe Ingredients for Orange Tofu

1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup cornstarch
16 oz block tofu, firm
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp chili paste
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp olive oil

Recipe Directions for Orange Tofu

  1. Drain and press tofu.

  2. Meanwhile, get out your other ingredients. Start with two large oranges. Zest one orange. Set zest aside and juice both oranges. (You can use orange juice to save time and skip the zest.)

  3. Put 1/4 cup of cornstarch in a deep plate or shallow bowl and set aside.

  4. In a small bowl combine soy sauce (or Bragg's liquid aminos), orange juice (and zest), water, sugar, chili paste (and/or throw in some hot peppers of your choice, dried or fresh), 1 tsp of cornstarch and 1 tbsp of oil. Set aside.

  5. Cut tofu into whatever size shapes suits your fancy. Toss the tofu in cornstarch until each piece is completely covered. Add more cornstarch to your bowl if needed.

  6. Heat 1/4 cup oil on med-high in deep frying pan (nonstick works great).

  7. Add coated tofu pieces to heated oil and fry until light brown and crispy on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.

  8. Add orange juice mixture to pan and whisk around until the sauce starts to thicken. Reduce heat to low and add back in tofu (and, if using, vegetables). Let simmer for a few minutes, then serve over rice and enjoy
