Tofu is such a versatile ingredient. In this recipe I marinated it in a sauce that had a touch of orange juice in with chopped asparagus and then roasted it for a while. Served with fried veggie rice, this made a really simple but ridiculously tasty dinner, proving that tofu can be amazing if you know how to treat it! #vegan#veganfood#whatveganseat#tofu#orange#marinated#asparagus#orangetofu
7 Orange Tofu nuggets, 1/2 cup of wild rice with garlic saracha and 1/2 cup of steamed broccoli for dinner today. Thanks @dylan.a.clack for doing such a great job and spoiling your hungry lady!
I woke up at 530am this morning and did the Cardio Power and Resistance video from the Insanity program. Then, after work today I spent an hour and a half at the gym for bicep and triceps. I'll be completely honest, I feel like such a beast! I have fueled myself right, kicked my own ass with my workouts today and it truly makes me feel so accomplished!
I am SO grateful that despite not wanting to wake up this morning, I fucking did it. I got myself out of bed, pumped myself up through positive self talk, reminding myself of my goals and I got that shit done. I want every day to be like this! I have proven to myself that I CAN have amazing days where I am focused and dedicated like today, so now there is no excuse to not be.
What can I say? Life is damn good!
Cooking while travelling is all about substitution and innovation. I had to use Fejø apple cider vinegar instead of rice wine vinegar for this "orange tofu" dish bc we couldn't find any in the store 😂 Turned out a bit different, but still delicious 😍🍎
Orange tofu with ginger cauliflower rice and garlic pepper air fried snap peas. Omg so good.
I cut 1/2 a package of Trader Joe's tofu into cubes (6sp). I cooked them for a few minutes on each side until a golden brown (in approx 2 tsp coconut oil). The orange sauce is the juice of 1 big navel orange (approx 1/2 cup), 1 tsp ginger, 1 minced clove of garlic, 1 tbs reduced sodium soy sauce, 2 tbs no sugar maple syrup and 1 tbs mirin mixed together. When the tofu is a golden color add in the sauce. There will be a lot of it, but just let it keep on cooking until it basically evaporates and leaves an awesome orange flavored coating on the tofu. You can check my Insta stories to see what I mean. The sauce is approx 5sp.
For the cauliflower rice, I just sautéed about 1 cup Trader Joe's frozen cauliflower rice in 1 tsp of ginger paste and approx 1/2 clove of garlic.
For the snap peas I sprayed them with a sesame oil spray and added in Flavorgod garlic seasoning and crushed red pepper. I placed in my air fryer for approx 10 min.
I just made crispy orange tofu and it was bomb. I usually only eat tofu if someone else cooks it. Like at a Thai or Chinese place. The thing that most people do not understand about tofu is that it gets crispy on the outside and it takes on the flavor of whatever you're cooking it with. So this tasted exactly like orange chicken from Panda Express with only minor calories comparatively. Now that I'm more confident in my tofu cooking skills, I will be eating this more. #tofu#orangetofu#vegan
