In a large sauté pan combine water, soy sauce, orange juice, orange zest, rice vinegar, honey, Chinese five-spice powder, and salt. Bring to a boil.

Remove from heat. Cool tofu in its liquid, turning a few more times.

Tofu is also known as bean curd — and for good reason! It is made by curding the mild white milk of the soybean. High in protein, tofu contains no cholesterol and is lactose free. When you're shopping, look for calcium-fortified tofu. Keep tofu refrigerated in water until you're ready to use it.
