LEARN HOW TO MAKE A TASTY ORANGE SESAME TOFU RECIPE TODAY!
LAY HO MA (how’s it going in Cantonese)! It’s crazy how simple this recipe is to put together and how simply delicious it is! Join me in this episode and learn how to make a crispy orange sesame tofu recipe today. Let’s begin!
350g extra firm tofu
2 tbsp avocado oil
1 piece garlic
small piece ginger
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp cane sugar
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1/2 tsp potato starch
1 tsp water
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp black sesame seeds
1 tsp white sesame seeds
1. Preheat the oven to 400F
2. Pat dry the extra firm tofu with a paper towel, then slice into bite sized cubes. Transfer the tofu to a mixing bowl and add the avocado oil. Toss to coat
3. Transfer the tofu onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread the tofu out so that it doesn’t over crowd the pan. Bake in the oven for 25-30min
4. About 15min before the tofu is done, squeeze the oranges for 1 cup worth of juice
5. Transfer the orange juice to a small saucepan. Add some orange zest. Grate the garlic and ginger. Add in the cayenne pepper, cane sugar, turmeric, and toasted sesame oil
6. Cook on medium heat for 2-3min. Make a slurry by combining the potato starch with the water and soy sauce
7. Pour the slurry into the orange sauce while stirring. Cook for another 1-2min and the sauce will start to thicken (add a little more slurry if the sauce doesn’t reach your desired consistency)
8. Toss the crispy tofu in the sauce or serve the tofu with some sauce poured on top. Sprinkle with white and black sesame seeds
