Sounds strange but if you like tofu you'll love this. Came from "the healthy college cookbook" Sometimes I use cranberry juice instead so this recipe is versitile.
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3⁄4 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1⁄4 lb tofu, sliced into stripes
- 2 slices bread
- Heat orange juice, cinnamon, and sugar until bubbly.
- Add tofu and cook 3 minutes.
- While tofu cooking toast bread.
- Lay stripes of tofu on toast and drizzle with the juice.
Not a fan. I don't like orange juice, so i used strawberry banana juice...i doubled the juice/cinnamon/sugar to make enough to cover the tofu, but it didn't flavor the tofu very much...tasted like i was eating soggy tofu on toast.
I tried this recipe without the toast (I am on a low-carb diet) and found the tofu to be very sour (because of the orange juice) and not sweet enough. I will try this recipe again, and will increase the amount of brown sugar. (I actually used Splenda brown sugar)
It's like a quick French toast! I did make some modifications for personal preference: 1/4c OJ, 1/2t cinnamon, 1/2t maple syrup, and about 3oz extra-firm tofu. It was perfect for me! I had it on honey whole wheat toast with a banana. A very satisfying breakfast!
