Servings 2


  • 250 grams Organic Firm Tofu cubed
  • 1 2/3 tablespoons Peanut Oil
  • 1 small Red Onion sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Peanut Oil
  • 1/2 a red Chilli sliced
  • For Orange Sauce:
  • Zest and Juice of 1 large Orange
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha
  • 4 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon White Wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 4 teaspoons Tamari
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Seeds
  • For Garnish:
  • Spring Onion sliced


  • Prepare Tofu: Heat 1 Tablespoon of oil in a pan and lightly sear your tofu on all sides to create a crispy crust. You may need to do this in batches if your pan is not big enough, otherwise your tofu may end up stewing instead of searing.
  • Once all your tofu has been seared, set aside on a wire rack.
  • Prepare Orange Sauce: In a bowl, combine all ingredients for orange sauce and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and sautee garlic, onion and chilli for a minute or two. Pour in prepared sauce mixture and stir well. Once sauce simmers and thickens, add tofu in and coat pieces in the orange sauce.
  • Immediately transfer to serving dish and garnish with cilantro and spring onion. Serve with a steaming bowl of jasmine rice.
