Orange Tofu, Orange Sweet Potatoes

Continuing with the orange juice theme...  Tonight's dinner was pretty orangey.  The tofu was pretty good, and I ended up eating it with my fingers... which was fun.  I liked the slightly burnt taste, as well.  The sweet potatoes were better than I had thought possible - the orange juice turned, rather unexpectedly, into a glaze, which was oh so good.  Inspired by HHL and A Veggie Venture.

The tofu was cut into slabs, pressed, and marinated in orange juice with a bit of pepper for 30 minutes.  It was sprinkled with nooch and grilled on the panini press for 7 minutes, then served.
The sweet potato was peeled and cut into rounds.  about 1/2 - 3/4 cup orange juice was brought to a boil in a Dutch oven, and the sweet potatoes were added.  The were boiled for about 20 minutes, uncovered, until tender and the juice reduced to a glaze.  The heat was reduced, and then they were sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar.
