Orange-Glazed “Chicken” Tofu

Orange-Glazed Chicken

This recipe is similar to orange-glazed chicken on the menu at many Chinese restaurants – it’s a great way to capture the flavor for your little vegans. For big kids, serve over rice and add stir-fried veggies to make it a complete meal.


  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (1 lb) package firm tofu
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  1. Whisk together the orange juice, soy sauce, and maple syrup in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the orange juice mixture; simmer over medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes. Whisk in the cornstarch and cook for a final 3 to 4 minutes, until the sauce is thickened.
