Vegan Orange Tofu

Skip the take out and make this Vegan Orange Tofu instead. Perfect with a bowl of steamy rice!

Ingredients:

  • 250 grams Organic Firm Tofu, cubed
  • 1 2/3 tablespoons Peanut Oil
  • 1 small Red Onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Peanut Oil
  • 1/2 a red Chilli, sliced

For Orange Sauce:

  • Zest and Juice of 1 large Orange
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha
  • 4 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon White Wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 4 teaspoons Tamari
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Seeds

For Garnish:

  • Spring Onion, sliced

Method:

  1. Prepare Tofu: Heat 1 Tablespoon of oil in a pan and lightly sear your tofu on all sides to create a crispy crust. You may need to do this in batches if your pan is not big enough, otherwise your tofu may end up stewing instead of searing.
  2. Once all your tofu has been seared, set aside on a wire rack.
  3. Prepare Orange Sauce: In a bowl, combine all ingredients for orange sauce and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  4. In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and sautee garlic, onion and chilli for a minute or two. Pour in prepared sauce mixture and stir well. Once sauce simmers and thickens, add tofu in and coat pieces in the orange sauce.
  5. Immediately transfer to serving dish and garnish with cilantro and spring onion. Serve with a steaming bowl of jasmine rice.
