Crispy Tofu + Orange Sauce

Cooking time : 35 Min
Preparation time : 15 Min
Serves : 2
Difficulty : Easy

This is a great way to cook tofu coupled with some sautéed bok choy or steamed veggies! I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite Vegan Cook Books: The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.

Ingredients :

  • 1 (8oz package of tofu – we like extra firm)
  • 1/2 C corn flour
  • 1/2 C rice flour
  • 4 Tbsp Ghee or Sunflower Oil
  • 1/3 C Orange Juice
  • 1/3 C Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp of grated fresh ginger*
  • *have fun with the dipping sauce and make your own flavors. I’ve used fennel powder and lemon for a more tangy sauce.

Directions :

Cut the tofu into 1/4 inch thick slices.
Mix the flours together in a bowl.
Pour ghee/oil into large skillet to cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer and heat on medium heat.
Dip each tofu slice into the flour mixture, coating well on both sides.
Place slices in the skillet and cook until lightly brown on both sides – about 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels or coffee filters to drain.

Dipping Sauce:
With a hand blender or food processor, process orange juice, maple syrup, and ginger. Serve with tofu slices!
I serve the tofu on a platter for the middle of the table and give each person their own little bowl of dipping sauce – keeps it fun and my 2 year old son loves it! Visit my Facebook page for a picture!
