Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Orange Chicken Style Tofu
(www.vegweb.com)

 Ingredients:
 
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 pound extra firm tofu, drained and pressed, chopped into bite sized pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, to taste
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
hot cooked rice, to serve
 
Directions:
 
1. Sauté tofu in 2 tablespoons oil until browned. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, sauté garlic and green onions in remaining 1 tablespoon oil until garlic is golden.
 
2. Add water, orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and pepper flakes.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium.
 
3. In a small cup or dish, mix together cornstarch and water until thoroughly blended.  Pour cornstarch mixture into sauce, stirring constantly. 
 
4. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sauce thickens to your liking.  Remove from heat and combine with tofu until completely coated. Serve over rice.
 
Use more or less cornstarch mixture depending on how thick you like your sauce.  You can also add ginger if you like that flavor.  Or orange peel or orange juice concentrate for more orange flavor.  Enjoy!
