Savour the season with our Glazed Holiday Tofu Roast – a savoury, plant-based centerpiece that adds a festive twist to your celebrations. Perfectly spiced and glazed for a delicious holiday meal without the fuss.


  1. The day before you want to eat the tofu roast, open the tofu, drain liquid, and then press it to rid of excess brine. Wrap it in a dry towel and stack some heavy pans/objects on top to press out moisture. Change the towel and dry twice allowing 15 minutes each pressing.
  2. Combine your ingredients for the marinade.
  3. Marinate for a minimum of 24 hours in resealable freezer bags or containers.
  4. When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  5. On the bottom of your baking dish, put your orange slices and garlic.
  6. Score the top of the tofu in a diamond pattern.
  7. Decorate each intersection with whole cloves and place in the baking dish.
  8. Bake 30-40 minutes or until cooked thoroughly with some caramelized edges.
  9. While the tofu is baking, combine your glaze ingredients and cook on medium heat. Allow to thicken/combine while stirring consistently.
  10. Take tofu out of the oven and pour your glaze over the tofu.
  11. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until caramelized.
  12. Slice, plate, and enjoy!
