I am trying to have tofu more often and thought this recipe looked good. If following the WW flex plan this is only 3 points/serving. Recipe source: WW Magazine (January 2008)

Update: I used 1 large can of mandarin oranges and tossed them in JUST before serving. We all loved it this way. We weren't too keen on the orange cooked into the dish. Orig. review Aug 28, 2009: Really yummy. I diced and coated the tofu with egg and cornstarch and pan fried it first to make it crispy. My family likes it this way. The only thing I will change is the orange. I didn't like the pieces in this dish. I think it was because it was warm. I plan to try mandarin orange slices and just regular orange juice to see if we like it better. I served this with Jasmine rice and my husband liked chow mein noodles over the top. Thanks for posting.
