For the Crispy Tofu

For the Orange Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger root minced
  • 1 teaspoon liquid aminos or low sodium tamari
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch


For the Tofu

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, tear the tofu right off the block into large chunks, about 1 square inch.  Place the tofu in the bowl, and toss it with corn starch, sunflower oil, garlic salt, and turmeric. Mix well to combine.
  • Place coated tofu on the lined sheet pan, and bake for 40 minutes, flipping halfway.

For the Sauce

  • In a large saucepan, add the sunflower oil, garlic, and ginger root. Saute over low heat for 4-5 minutes until garlic and ginger begin to brown.
  • Add the liquid aminos, orange juice and chili flakes and bring to a boil.
  • Whisk in the corn starch to thicken the sauce, and continue to stir over low heat.
  • Once tofu has finished cooking, toss with the orange sauce. Top with sesame seeds and green onion, and serve with rice and veggies.  Enjoy!
