Savory Orange-Roasted Tofu & Asparagus

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (112 votes)

If you've never had roasted tofu before, here's a great way to start. Toss tofu and asparagus in a tangy orange- and basil-scented sauce, made rich and savory with miso. Serve with brown rice or couscous and an orange-and-fennel salad.

Simple, quick and delicious

Do yourself a favour, follow this recipe and make this dish!
Only tip I'd add is to make sure your roasting tin isn't too big or the cooking sauce will burn.
You could also try letting the tofu dry for a good half an hour rather than just pat-drying, and I let it marinate for a few hours in the cooking sauce too.

Very good

I really like this recipe, and I've made it several times. Asparagus is really great in it, but I have also made it with broccoli and green beans, whatever is in season will do. I love that it tastes like oranges, I always juice the orange that I zest instead of using store bought OJ. And I do skip the salt. Red miso keeps for a long time, it's a staple in my fridge now so I can whip this up frequently

Simple and pretty yummy!
I made this recipe replacing 1/2 the asparagus with broccoli and leaving out the salt. It wasn't bad! I added extra orange zest but regretted it. Try local produce stores to find miso.
