Crispy Tofu Slices with Orange Dipping Sauce &
Vegetable Fried Rice
I had this last night and it tasted like a Chinese Dinner.
1 Package Baked Savory Tofu
1/2 C Corn Flour
1/2 C Brown Rice Flour
2/3 C Fresh Orange Juice (It take 3 Oranges)
1/2 C Maple Syrup
In a shallow bowl, mix the two types of flour together. Slice the Tofu in strips and coat Tofu in mixture on both sides.
Heat oil in pan on Medium Heat, when oil is hot fry Tofu Strips for about 3 minutes on both sides.
To make Orange Sauce mix both ingredients in a bowl and stir well.
Medium Grain Brown Rice (You can use Long Grain)
Cook Rice according to package directions.
Dice up Tomatoes, Onion, Mushrooms and Garlic to your preference.
I steam Fresh Peas but you can use whatever kind you would like.
Heat Safflower Oil in pan, after hot toss in Onions, Mushrooms, Garlic and Tomatoes, add cooked Brown Rice and Cooked Peas and fry all together with a few drops of Shoyu.
Serve Tofu Strips with Dipping Sauce and Fried Rice while hot. The Tofu Strips taste a lot like Chicken and has the consistency of Chicken. Even if you are a bit hesitant it is worth trying, I think it will surprise you! If you try this recipe let me know what you think!
