Fresh citrus-flavors, coupled with colorful peppers, crispy tofu, green onions, and sesame seeds. This Thai-inspired orange tofu stir-fry is a one-pot, healthy, vegan, gluten-free dish that's become a weeknight favorite in our house!
Cut each block of tofu in half. Place each half in 2 clean paper towels one at a time and gently press/squeeze to remove excess stored liquid (without breaking up the tofu).
Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch cubes and pan fry on medium-high heat with 2 tbsp oil. Gently Mix and turn frequently until all the water is burned off and the tofu is lightly golden brown on most sides (be sure not to burn the tofu). If you find that the tofu is sticking to the pan, add a little more oil.
Once done, set aside. While the tofu is cooking, slice the bell peppers (as indicated below).
Add the chili sauce for an added level of heat/spice.
Turn off the heat and add the chopped green onions. Sprinkle on some white sesame seeds. Toss once more and serve hot over some cooked brown rice or quinoa.
