Chipotle-Citrus Tofu And Broccoli

Recipe © 2013 by Robin Robertson and used by permission

Gluten-free | Serves 4

The combination of heat from the chipotles and citrus from the orange and lemon juices makes a flavorful sauce that packs a punch for the broccoli and tofu. This can be enjoyed alone or served over rice or quinoa; and, of course, you may substitute another vegetable for the broccoli (cauliflower or asparagus are good choices) or use seitan, tempeh, or cooked beans in place of the tofu.


  • 3 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound extra-firm tofu, well drained, blotted dry, and cut into 1/2‑inch dice
  • 3 scallions, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo, pureed or finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon natural sugar
  • 1/2 cup water or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


Heat about an inch of water in a skillet and bring to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook until just tender. Drain and set aside in a bowl.

Wipe out the skillet and add the oil. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and sauté until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add the scallions and garlic, season to taste with salt and pepper, and cook 1 minute longer, then transfer the tofu mixture to the bowl with the broccoli.

In the same skillet, bring the orange juice to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the chipotle chiles, tomato paste, mustard, sugar, and water, and cook until slightly syrupy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch mixture for about 1 minute to thicken. Add the lemon juice. Return the reserved tofu mixture and broccoli to the pan and cook until heated through and glazed with sauce, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.
