Servings: 4
Extra firm organic tofu - 1 package
Broccoli (cut into florets) 
1 head
Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp
Low-sodium tamari or aminos
1 tbsp
Garlic powder
1 tsp
Cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1 tbsp
Olive oil spray
Sea salt
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F/200°C/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and spray with olive oil.
  3. Unpack tofu, pat dry with a cotton towel. Place tofu on a platter, cover with a saucer and top with something heavy (like canned something). Leave for 10 minutes, then discard any liquid that squeezed out of tofu. Flip tofu over and repeat the process.
  4. Cut the pressed tofu into 1-in cubes. Whisk olive oil with tamari, garlic powder and a little salt in a large mixing bowl. Add tofu into the bowl and marinate until the cubes absorb almost all the marinade (it will take a couple of minutes). Sprinkle with cornstarch; toss to coat.
  5. Distribute broccoli florets on one baking sheet, sprinkle with sea salt and a little more olive oil.  Spread marinated tofu on the other baking sheet. Put tofu on the lowermost oven rack and broccoli on the topmost. Roast for about 10 minutes, flip tofu and broccoli and bake for 15 minutes more. Remove from oven when tofu is golden brown and crispy and broccoli only slightly browned.
  6. While tofu and broccoli are baking, cook the Soy Glaze with Fresh Orange Juice.
  7. Toss tofu and broccoli in the glaze, top with chopped peanuts, sprinkle with red pepper flakes and fresh cilantro.
