Orange Tofu with Broccoli

Okay, so THAT is orange tofu with bok choy.  I realized after making this again that I never followed up with the recipe last time I made it.  I definitely wanted to share this one, cause I like it a lot.  As in, I made it twice in two months which is not normal for me.  I like that I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

The version with bok choy was just okay.  Make it with broccoli.  Trust me.  Oh, and here are directions for dry-frying tofu.

Orange Tofu with Broccoli

1 lb. extra-firm tofu, cut into cubes or triangles
bunch of broccoli, cut into florets
4 cloves garlic
4 green onions
3/4 c water
1/4 c orange juice
1 Tbs lemon juice
2 Tbs seasoned rice vinegar
4 Tbs soy sauce
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp red pepper
1 Tbs cornstarch

Dry-fry tofu until browned, or saute in oil if preferred. Steam broccoli until crisp-tender.

Whisk remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Heat a large skillet to medium, and add tofu, broccoli and sauce mixture. Bring to a simmer, then continue to simmer until the sauce is reduced to your liking, stirring occasionally.

Serve over brown rice.

Serves 4.

    I’m coming to the party two years late, but this was fantastic! There’s a chance that with it, I might be the BEST vegetarian cook in my whole town. (Of course, there’s a chance that I’m the ONLY vegetarian cook in my whole town, but that’s a different issue.) Even my carnivore spouse loved it!
