  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add cauliflower; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). (If using a countertop convection oven, preheat to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C)). Place baking sheet inside to warm.

  • Remove paper towel from tofu; discard. Place tofu onto heated baking sheet using heatproof gloves.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, flipping once, until tofu is heated through, about 3 minutes per side in the conventional oven and 2 minutes per side in the countertop induction oven.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a wok on medium heat. Add onions and scallions; cook and stir until onions are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic. Turn wok to high heat; stir in green peppers.

  • Combine water and orange liqueur in a bowl. Pour 1 tablespoon liqueur mixture into wok; toss with 2 wooden spoons until mixed. Repeat with remaining liqueur mixture; cook and stir until evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Sprinkle soy sauce into the wok. Fold in tofu until coated.

  • Place cauliflower in serving bowls and top with tofu mixture. Garnish with red chile peppers; season with salt.

This is a deliciously different way to serve tofu. I had to make a couple of changes. I only had regular firm tofu that I pan fried. I also used orange blossom water instead of liqueur and red bell peppers instead of green. The flavor is unique and fantastic served over the cauliflower 'rice'. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This was good and a nice change of pace from the usual stir-fry. I made the stir-fry part exactly as written. (I served it over jasmine rice instead of cauliflower.) I do love riced cauliflower though so next time I will make it that way. I usually make my own cauliflower "rice" by pulsing cauliflower florets in the blender for a few seconds. Next time I will also add more orange liqueur because I couldn't taste it but I imagine it would really brighten up the flavors. Read More

First I do need to say that I am not crazy about tofu to begin with but I do try out different recipes using it from time to time just to give it another try. This was decent. I agree with LilSnoo that it does need more orange flavor as I did not taste it. Maybe try adding in some fresh orange juice or zest? I also opted to serve this over rice. Some more sauce to spoon over the rice would've been nice too. This was a nice light meal and I do think that someone that likes tofu (more than me) would really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This recipe has a nice light flavor. I might even add double the amount of liqueur next time. Cauliflower rice is my new favorite vegetable and hadn't thought of serving it with tofu...so I am glad to have a new dish to add to my weeknight dinners. Read More

I made this recipe as written and liked it however I would suggest some changes to the process. I baked the Tofu in the oven as directed but found it to be an unnecessary step. You can easily heat the Tofu with the onions garlic and bell peppers. Also the orange liqueur flavor did not come through on this dish and I was really looking forward to that! Overall this is a great dish and I would make it again with slight changes. Read More
