Serves 4-6, <20 minutes + 1 hour baking

Everyone who tried this simple dish at our recipe-testing meeting raved about it. The orange flavour really comes through.

16 oz (500 g) firm tofu (2 blocks)
1/4 cup (60 ml) soy sauce
3 Tbsp (45 ml) rice vinegar
3 Tbsp (45 ml) maple syrup
1/2 cup (120 ml) orange juice
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
1/4 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp grated orange peel

Cut tofu into large bite-sized squares and place in a bowl. • Blend remaining ingredients. Pour over tofu. • If time allows, marinate for one hour or longer.

Remove tofu from marinade and place in a small casserole dish along with half of the marinade. Bake uncovered in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for one hour, gently stirring and basting with marinade every 20 minutes.

Garnish with chopped parsley or fresh coriander. Serve with rice and salad.
