Ingredients

12 ounces Extra Firm Tofu (340g) Pressed, Cubed

3 cups Butternut Squash (450g) Peeled and Cubed

1 Medium Red Bell Pepper Chopped

1 Large Carrot Chopped

1 cup Zucchini (100g) Sliced

2 and 1/2 cups White Button Mushrooms (240g) Sliced

2 cups Broccoli Florets (160g)

2 Tbsp Sesame Oil

1 Tbsp Crushed Garlic

1 tsp Dried Basil

1 tsp Dried Thyme

1/4 tsp Sea Salt

1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper

For the Sauce:

2 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil

3 Tbsp Maple Syrup

3 Tbsp Soy Sauce

1 tsp Crushed Garlic

For Serving (Optional):

Cooked Quinoa

Fresh Chopped Parsley

Lemon Wedges

Instructions

1Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

2Press the block of tofu, ideally using a tofu press or by placing it on a plate, with another plate on top of it and something heavy on top of that (like a heavy pot) and let it press for 20 minutes.

3While the tofu is pressing, prepare your veggies.

4When the tofu has pressed, cut it into cubes.

5Add the peeled and chopped butternut squash, chopped red bell pepper, chopped carrot, sliced zucchini, sliced mushrooms, broccoli florets and the cubed tofu to a mixing bowl.

6Add the sesame oil, crushed garlic, dried basil, dried thyme, sea salt and black pepper and toss the vegetables and tofu with the oil and spices so that they're lightly covered.

7Transfer the veggies to a 9x13 baking dish and spread them out. Cover with foil and bake for 35-45 minutes until the veggies are soft and cooked.

8While the veggies are baking, cook up some quinoa, according to package instructions, to serve alongside the veggies.

9Mix up your sauce by adding the toasted sesame oil, maple syrup, soy sauce and crushed garlic to a measuring jug and whisking it to combine.

10When the veggies are cooked, pour the sauce over the top of the veggies and toss the veggies to mix it in.

11Serve alongside the quinoa with a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley on top and some lemon wedges on the side.
