  1. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Place the 1/4 cup cornstarch in a dish; press tofu slices in the cornstarch to coat on all sides. Stir-fry in the wok 5 minutes, or until golden brown on all sides. Drain tofu on paper towels. Allow wok to cool, and wipe clean.
  2. In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, orange juice, water, sugar, chili paste, and cornstarch until smooth.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the wok, and stir-fry the carrots until tender. Form a well in the center of the carrots, and pour in the sauce. Bring sauce to a boil. Mix tofu into the wok, and continue cooking until coated with the sauce.

THis was absolutely delicous! Dont skimp on the cornstarch used to batter the tofu slices. You may need a little more than 1/4 cup. Make sure tofu is not dripping wet when you batter it or it...

This was absolutely incredible! It is now a staple. My only changes were: added one chopped green pepper, and I froze the tofu for about 3 days (it seems to give it a 'meatier' texture).

This orange sauce was delicious! I substituted Sriracha hot sauce for the chili paste and used different veggies. The only change I will make next time is to add more cornstarch to the sauce as...

I loved this sauce! I doubled the sauce though, and made the following changes: I omitted the tofu completely and cooked with chicken instead. I also added onions, garlic, and sweet red peppe...

I did what other reviewers suggested, made extra sauce and added more veggies. Addictive! Very easy and truly delicious. I used orange juice concentrate for more orange flavour, 1/2 can.

My family has the tofu lovers and haters, but this recipe was so fabulous, everyone loved it! I highly recommend this delicious recipe.

My husband and I were not fans of this recipe. To me the tofu was like having chunks of belgian waffles in the stir fry... we picked it out and ate the rest, which was alright.
