Vegan Orange Glazed Tofu "Chicken"

User Rating 4 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


Vegan Orange Glazed Tofu

Easy orange tofu - yum!

Like orange chicken? Try this meatless vegan "chicken" instead!

Easy vegetarian (and vegan!) tofu recipe with an orange glaze; similar to an orange glazed chicken you might find at a Chinese restaurant. A sweet, spicy and tangy orange-glazed tofu. Toss in some veggies and extra sauce, and serve over rice to make it a full vegetarian and vegan meal.

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 block firm or extra-firm tofu, well pressed and diced into cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 3 tbsp water


Sautee tofu and garlic in olive oil for 3-4 minutes, until tofu is just lightly browned.

Stir in soy sauce, orange juice, rice vinegar, marmalade and ginger, whisking to combine and coat tofu.

Heat for 3-4 minutes, then add cornstarch and water, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil and cook until sauce thickens.

Serve over rice or another whole grain.
