I served Orange Cranberry Tofu when my kids had friends over and no one complained. And there were no leftovers.
Not much more to say.
This is super fast and easy – just mix together the sauce ingredients, pour the sauce over the tofu, bake for about 30 minutes and you’re done.
I use dried onions because I like the concentrated flavor, but if you don’t have any just substitute a chopped green onion or 2-3 tablespoons / 30 – 45 ml of chopped fresh onion.
The recipe calls for medium or firm tofu. The firm type will hold its shape best. Don’t use soft tofu – it will fall apart.

The sauce thins out while the tofu is baking. If you prefer a thicker sauce, stir together 1/2 teaspoon / 2.5 ml cornstarch + 1 teaspoon / 2.5 ml water and it to the sauce before you pour it over the tofu.
