This orange tofu is a very delicious recipe, tofu coated with orange sauce…So delicious! Orange tofu could be enjoyed with rice, in lettuce wraps, as is and many more. If you love tofu, this orange tofu is for you.
Some people called Tofu bean curd and prepared by coagulating soy milk, then pressing the resulting curds into solid white blocks of varying softness. In this recipe, the tofu used in this orange tofu was brown over high heat but feel free to bake it for a more crispier texture. I didn’t make a lot of sauce as it was prepared to be used for lettuce wraps, but if you want more sauce just double, triple or as much as you want.
This orange tofu recipe is really good, and you don’t want to miss it.
You might want to try;
- 2 Packs Extra Firm Tofu (24oz)
- 1/4 Cup Rice Flour (or AP flour)
- 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch (divided)
- 1 Tablespoon Garlic powder
- Salt and pepper
- Oil for frying
- 1 Cup Freshly squeezed orange juice
- 2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
- 1/4 Cup Broth/water (depending on how much sauce you want)
- 2 Tablespoons Rice vinegar
- 3 Tablespoons Honey (adjust to your preference)
- 2 Tablespoons Low soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon Chili (adjust to your preference)
- Salt and pepper
Wrap the tofu with paper towels and place a heavy object on it to press it down for about 10 minutes. You want to get as much liquid as possible out of the tofu.
Cut into cube and coat with about 2 tablespoons cornstarch, rice flour/AP-flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Heat oil in a skillet and fry the coated tofu about 2-3 minutes or until you have the crispiness you want. You can also bake the tofu in 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes depending on the quantity and how crispy you want it.
Combine all the ingredients under the sauce and bring to a boil over medium-low heat, then simmer for about 2 minutes until thickens.
If you want more sauce you can double the sauce, I didn’t need a lot of sauce because it was made to be served in lettuce wraps hence the quantity. But if you want to serve it over rice, couscous and so on you can double the sauce.
Add the fried tofu to the thickened sauce to coat the tofu.
Wrap it and enjoy!
