This is not the best recipe. Tastes funky. Not loving the OJ flavoring. I make tofu all the time. Would not make again. My kids didn't like it much either and they eat Anything!


I made this as written and it was a huge disappointment. As another reviewer noted, it completely lacks any depth of flavor. Also, the sauce, which is mostly orange juice, is too thin to really do much for this dish. Wtih some added ingredients/thickeners, this might be decent, but as is, I won't be making it again.

Needs a few changes, but once you get strong flavor... MM!

Cook the tofu in the sauce. Cannot stress this enough. Tofu literally soaks up flavors! We added soy sauce to taste while cooking, extra orange juice, orange marmalade for some stronger orange flavor, plus 4 chipotles and some of the liquid from the can. We like it a bit spicy. It doesn't really matter whether you remove the tofu or not from the pan; if you don't the tofu will crumble a bit but it soaks up the flavors much better. We've made this dish 3 or 4 times already; it's joined our regular rotation. It's a fast and flavorful dish (with the right additions) so we make a double batch to have leftovers!

Easy and Delicious!

While the flavor may be a little simple its a great meal to make with little time and simple ingredients. Next time I plan on adding water chestnuts for some crunch. I'm going to take the advice of the other reviewers and thicken up the sauce, but however I choose to change the recipe, I'm pretty sure I'll make this dish once a week!

Easy, quick, delicious, cheap to make.
Exellent...with some added soy!

After reading the other reviews I modified this recipe just a little bit and we LOVED it! I don't know if the modification made a huge difference. I cut the tofu up and marinated in 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce for an hour before cooking then put whatever soy sauce (probably just a couple of tablespoons) remained in with the orange juice sauce. I also thickened the sauce a bit at the end with some corn starch. I thought the flavor was great - we ate it leftovers! :(
