Orange-Roasted Tofu & Asparagus

Orange-Roasted Tofu & Asparagus

Roasting tofu in the oven is a great way to create a very meaty texture. No mushy tofu here and combined with a very flavorful sauce the cubes are almost like cubes of beef.

14 ounces tofu
extra-firm water-packed, rinsed
2 tablespoons red miso
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 teaspoons olive oil, extra-virgin
1 pound asparagus
trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons basil
chopped fresh
¼ cup orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
freshly grated
¼ teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Pat tofu dry and cut into ½-inch cubes.

Whisk 1 tablespoon miso, 1 tablespoon vinegar and 2 teaspoons oil in a large bowl until smooth.

Add the tofu; gently toss to coat.

Spread the tofu in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Roast for 15 minutes. Gently toss asparagus with the tofu.

Return to the oven and roast until the tofu is golden brown and the asparagus is tender, 8 to 10 minutes more.

Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon miso, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 2 teaspoons oil, basil, orange zest and juice, and salt in the large bowl until smooth.

Toss the roasted tofu and asparagus with the sauce and serve.

I marinated the tofu for some time in the vinegar, oil mixture. Didn't have the miso so added soy sauce instead along with some wasabi powder to kick it up a notch.
