Viva Vegan's Zesty Orange Mojo Baked Tofu and Cilantro-Lime Rice

 Viva Vegan's "Zesty Orange Mojo Baked Tofu" and "Cilantro-Lime Rice" are 2 more yummy recipes out of this amazing cookbook! Here is the recipe for the tofu on another blog!
 I thought the "Zesty Orange Mojo Baked Tofu" could have gone a little easier on the orange peel (I googled it and 1 orange zest equals about 2 tablespoons, I think only 1 tablespoon would have been better) but other than that it was delicious. I also grated the garlic because to me, it is much easier than mincing it or chopping it small.
 This is the second time now than I made the "Cilantro-Lime Rice" and this is a recipe I will be making often. I think 20 minutes cooking time is far too long. 15 would be better as my rice was a bit dry. I still needed the added salt, even though I used veggie broth, maybe the broth cubes I have aren't that salty compared to other brands, I dunno. I also doubled the amount of green onions and cilantro and added about a teaspoon of garlic powder to the recipe.
