Recipe Week! Orange Ginger Tofu.

 Orange Ginger Tofu

½ pound firm tofu, pressed
1 ½ tbs grated orange zest
1 tbs grated ginger
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 tbs soy sauce
3 tbs orange juice
1 tsp granulated sugar
2 tsp oil (I used rapeseed, but I'm sure coconut would be great as well)

Cut the tofu in the way that you like it and place it in a plastic container or plastic bag. I cut 4 slices that I halved. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade, and pour it over the tofu. It wont cover the tofu, but mix it around and make sure the tofu pieces are coated in it. Let sit for at least 2 hours, the longer the better! When ready to eat, pan fry or bake the tofu. Use the leftover marinade to make a sauce by adding 1/3 cup of water and 1 tbs of cornstarch dissolved in a little bit of water, and heat it on medium heat until thickened. When the tofu is done, add it to the sauce and let simmer for about 3 minutes. Serve over rice.
