I came home from work yesterday starving.  I had some brown rice, a head of broccoli, some green onion and 4 bucks in my pocket.  I walked to the corner store and purchased some cilantro, a little ginger and 3 oranges and had 2 bucks to spare!

So not including the staples I had in my cupboards, I spent about $1.50 a serving.

Here’s what I came up with…

Don’t be fooled by the medium level.  Its actually just a lot of waiting.  And thats a medium level skill for me.  Otherwise this thing is a piece of cake and tastes super good.  I took the leftovers to work the next day and polished it off.

ANNNDDD! We are very excited to be including our first ever video!  Let us know what you think!

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Tofu
  • 1 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar
  • 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 4 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Peeled and Grated Fresh Ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Hot Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Green Onion
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Cilantro

Method

Step 1

Turn the tofu onto its side and cut into slices. Then cut those slices into 2 triangles. This should yield between 8-16 triangles.

Step 2

Put the orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, oils, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes in a bowl and whisk.

Step 3

At this point you probably want to preheat the oven to 350. Lay the tofu in a glass baking dish in a single layer and pour the marinade over the entire thing. Add the onion and cilantro to the top and spread evenly. Allow the marinade to sit for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight if you have the patience that I do not possess.

Step 4

Pour out a portion of the marinade so that the tofu is only about halfway submerged. Throw it in the oven for about 40-45 minutes, until the tofu is golden and most of the marinade has been absorbed.
