Crispy Tofu + Orange Sauce

Cooking time : 15 Min
Preparation time : 10 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.

In a large skillet pan on medium heat pour ghee/oil, covering the bottom of the pan with a thin layer.

Dip each tofu slice into the flour mixture, coating well on both sides.

Place slices in the skillet and cook until lightly brown – about 2-3 minutes per side.

Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels or coffee filters to drain.

Dipping Sauce:

In a hand blender or food processor combine 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!
