Tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, red cabbage, olive oil, red onion, garlic, tamari, Italian herb seasoning, butternut squash, and tofu

This 1-pan surprise begins with roasting your alternative of veggies. For a winter variation, we went with butternut squash and purple cabbage, plus purple onion for sweetness.

Whereas the veggies are roasting, we crumble and season the Italian herb tofu. Crumbling it ensures crispy edges and seasoning with balsamic vinegar, tamari, olive oil, tomato paste, garlic, and Italian herb seasoning (basil + oregano + thyme) brings MAJOR taste!

As soon as the veggies start to melt, the tofu joins the celebration for the remaining time within the oven. The tip result’s crispy tofu and tender, caramelized veggies…all on one sheet pan. MAGIC!

Does it maintain? 2-3 Days


  • 6 cups butternut squash, peeled and sliced into 1-inch cubes (1 ½ lb squash yields ~6 cups // or sub delicata squash or candy potato)
  • 3 cups purple cabbage, minimize into 1/2-inch strips (1/2 cabbage yields ~3 cups or 290g)
  • 1 giant purple onion, peeled and sliced into 8-10 wedges by way of the foundation finish (1 onion yields ~2 cups or 240g sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp tamari (or soy sauce // guarantee gluten-free as wanted)


  • 1 (14-oz.) package deal extra-firm tofu
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar (NOT glaze)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp tamari (or soy sauce // guarantee gluten-free as wanted)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp Italian herb seasoning (basil + oregano + thyme)
  • 4-5 small cloves garlic, crushed or minced (4-5 cloves yield ~2 tsp crushed)
  • Preheat your oven to 425 F (218 C) and set out a big baking sheet.

  • VEGGIES: To a big mixing bowl add cubed squash, cabbage, purple onion, olive oil, and tamari. Toss effectively to coat.

  • Unfold the greens out onto the baking sheet (and set the bowl apart — you should utilize it for the tofu). Roast for 15-20 minutes, till the greens start to melt.

  • TOFU: In the meantime, put together the tofu. Wrap your extra-firm tofu in an absorbent towel. Set one thing heavy on prime — like a forged iron skillet — to press out further moisture for quarter-hour. Alternatively, use a tofu press.
  • To the now empty mixing bowl, add the balsamic vinegar, tamari, olive oil, tomato paste, Italian herb seasoning, and minced garlic. Whisk effectively to mix.

  • Subsequent, crumble the tofu into items lower than 1/2 inch in dimension and add them to the sauce, stirring effectively to coat.

  • As soon as the greens are smooth, stir them and prime with the ready tofu. Roast for 25-Half-hour extra, stirring often, till the tofu is crispy and the greens are tender and caramelizing on the edges.

  • Serve with Garlicky Hummus Sauce or 3-Ingredient Tahini Sauce and freshly chopped parsley (non-obligatory).
  • Retailer leftovers in an hermetic container within the fridge for as much as 3 days.
