Maple Orange Glazed Tofu
Recipe: Serves 4
- 1 fresh orange
- 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 2 tsp tamari sauce
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 package firm tofu
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
Directions – Put the orange in a blender and blend with the ginger, tamari, maple syrup, coriander, and garlic and set aside. Take the tofu and place on a dish towel with an additional dish towel on top. Press firmly to remove as much moisture as possible. Cut the tofu into thin bite sized pieces. Put the coconut oil in a large pan and bring to medium high heat. Add the tofu and fry for 5 minutes, until golden brown. Turn and brown.
Pour the OJ mixture into the pan and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the desired consistency has been reached. Serve with quinoa and sauteed kale. Enjoy!
Maple-Miso Glazed Tofu with Broccoli & Butternut Squash
yes this picture is hideous. sorryyy.
Recipe: Serves 4
- 1/4 cup white miso
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup tamari sauce
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp mirin
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 block of high protein tofu, diced
- 4 cups butternut squash (about 1/2 large squash), diced
- 4 cups broccoli (about 3 crowns), chopped
Directions – Preheat oven to 450F. Bake the squash for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender.
Slice the tofu into strips and lay flat on a dish towel. Press the moisture out to the best of your ability. Slice into cubes.
In a bowl large enough to fit all the tofu, whisk together the miso, maple syrup, soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin and 1 tbsp sesame oil. Add the tofu and marinate for at least 1 hour, but longer is better.
Add 1 tsp sesame oil to a wok over medium heat. Using a slotted spoon, add the tofu to the pan, leaving the marinade in the bowl. Cook for about 2 minutes per side and then flip over. Repeat until all sides are browned and crisp. Add broccoli to the pan. Mix to combine and then cover the pan, steaming for 2 to 4 minutes or until broccoli is bright green. Add the squash and the reserved marinade. Stir to combine until marinade is evenly distributed and everything is heated. Enjoy!
