Blanch all vegetables according to their individual cooking times.

Put carrots, turnips and pearl onions in a skillet. Add butter and sugar. Salt sparingly and pepper generously.

Cook over high heat until well-browned. (Sugar will caramelize around the vegetables which will be glazed and browned or «glacés à brun».)

In a large skillet, brown the garlic in olive oil. Remove the garlic and add the tofu. Sauté in olive oil until nicely browned.

Thin hoisin sauce with vegetable broth. Add potatoes, green beans and peas to the skillet with the tofu and heat through.

Add orange juice and zest, pour in hoisin sauce and bring to a boil. Add glazed vegetables and parsley. Adjust seasoning and serve.
