Sticky and oh so good orange sesame tofu! You can thank me later 😉 A quick meal that the entire family will enjoy.Jump to Recipe
I recently rediscovered this recipe and fell in love with it all over again. I forgot how easy and flavorful it was. This sauce works great with tofu but you can also use it with other proteins like chickpeas or chicken.
This recipe calls for honey but you could sub in maple syrup instead. It may not glaze as nice but the flavour is still there. Just play around with the amount you use because the sweetness can vary depending on the grade of maple syrup (amber versus dark for instance). If you choose this option let me know how it went!! Would love to hear your thoughts.
Make sure to use fresh oranges as it adds just the right amount of tart to balance out the sweet honey. The addition of fresh ginger and garlic help make this a bold, stand-alone sauce.
As the sauce reduces, it becomes super glossy coating the tofu into a sticky flavour bomb. If the flavour of the ginger and garlic are too intense for your kiddos just dial it down slightly.
My older and younger sons LOVE this recipe but my middle guy has very sensitive taste buds. So for him, I will serve the tofu plain. You can’t win them all! Two out of three ain’t bad right?
