One of the best things to make at home is Chinese food and I can’t wait for you all to give this Chinese Orange Tofu recipe a try! I wanted to make a recipe that embodies the typical orange sauce flavors but vegan and 100% homemade. The dish uses an orange-ginger jam which brings an added bonus of flavor and depth.
1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt
1 cup orange-ginger jam
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. grated ginger
1 orange juiced and zested
1 Tbsp. organic blue agave
1 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 Tbsp. organic tamari sauce
16 oz. container extra firm tofu, drained and cubed
1 Tbsp. organic cornstarch
Green onion, to garnish
- In a small pot on medium-high heat, add all of the ingredients and simmer for roughly 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- In a small bowl, add the diced tofu and sprinkle with cornstarch to coat. Pour the tofu into the sauce and reduce heat to simmer, cooking until heated.
- Serve over white rice and topped with green onions.
Chef’s tip: You can crisp up the tofu if you’d like by baking it or using an air fryer.
