so I decided to search the web for ideas on how to make my own safe but yummy recipe for orange chicken minus the chicken!
I made this recipe by combining a few i found online. and honestly the sauce is sooooo yummy
-block of firm tofu
-GF soy sauce
-rice wine vinegar
-3 medium to small cloves garlic, minced
-1 block firm or extra-firm tofu, drained and diced into cubes
-2 tbsp olive oil
-3 tbsp soy sauce
-1/2 cup orange juice
-2 tbsp rice vinegar
-1/2 cup orange marmalade
-1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
-1 1/2 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 3 tbsp water
Drain tofu for 30 minutes to and hour. Then what I like to do is cut it into squares and bake it at 350 for ten minutes. This helps a lot if you don't have a tofu drainer and your tofu is a little soggy still.
put the garlic and olive oil into the pain for about three minutes or till browned. Add in the soy sauce,orange juice,marmalade,ginger,and vinegar. Stir to combine and then add tofu. Mix until coated. Add the cornstarch and water mixture.This helps to thicken the sauce. Let it come to a boil and thicken .
