Honey and Orange Tofu (slow cooker)

hmmm…. Tofu in a honey & orange sauce sounded strange, but I thought I would give it a go!

It was actually quite nice – a bit too sweet for me (DH thought it was fine), and the sauce was too runny, but the way it soaked into the tofu was lovely.

Notes for next time:  Use less honey & add some cornflour to the sauce

Ingredients

  • 0.5 brick of firm tofu
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 50ml soy sauce
  • 50ml orange juice
  • 50ml honey
  • fresh broccoli florets

to serve

  • rice

Instructions

  1. Drain your tofu well and chop into bite-sized chunks
  2. Add the honey, soy sauce, orange juice & crushed garlic to the slow cooker & put on high.
  3. heat some oil in a pan & gently brown the tofu
  4. add the tofu to the slow cooker and mix
  5. wash and cut your fresh broccoli, then add to the mix
  6. Cook on low for 4-5 hours until the broccoli is tender
  7. serve with rice

  1. Sounds like a great idea. I might have to try it my self but with some agave instead of honey to make it vegan.
