1 pound extra-firm tofu
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 cups hot cooked long-grain brown rice


Wrap tofu block in several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Press with a heavy object for about 30 minutes to remove excess water. Remove paper towels, pat tofu dry, and cut lengthwise into 8 slices.

Combine hoisin sauce and next 5 ingredients; set aside.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu slices; cook 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from pan and keep warm.

Add hoisin sauce mixture to pan. Cook over medium heat 4 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return tofu to pan; cook 30 seconds. Serve with brown rice.
