Make citrus glazed tofu:
Ingredients:
1 block of firm tofu, sliced into large cubes
marinade:
2 Tbsp tamari
1/2 cup fresh citrus juice
1 1/2 Tbsp maple or agave syrup
pepper to taste
Directions:

Marinate tofu in liquid for at least 5 minutes. Add a splash of veggie oil to saute pan (I use safflower oil.) High heat. Wait until oil is hot, then add tofu. Cook on each side of cube for about 1 minute. Allow a nice sear to form. About half-way through cooking, reduce heat and add the leftover liquid from the marinade. Continue to cook until the liquid has absorbed or cooked off. Turn off heat, allow tofu to sit for at least 5 minutes before plating.
