Vegan Holiday Roast (Glazed Tofu)
This 5-ingredient holiday glazed tofu is the perfect vegan alternative to a traditional ham roast.
Tofu Pressing & Marinating Time
Dinner, Main Course
(14 oz.) block
extra firm tofu
Press the tofu for at least 30 minutes. (See notes)
Score the pressed tofu with a sharp knife in a diagonal pattern. Place tofu in a container.
Whisk together all of the glaze ingredients in a medium-sized pot.
Bring to a simmer on medium heat, then reduce to low. Let simmer for 2 minutes.
Pour about half of the glaze over the tofu. Let marinate for at least 1 hour, flipping halfway and basting with the marinade occasionally. You can also marinate overnight.
Continue to simmer the remaining glaze for an additional 4-5 minutes, until thickened and reduced by about half (do not cover with lid.)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove the tofu from the marinade and place on the baking sheet. Brush with about half of the thickened glaze.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the edges have browned.
Brush the remaining glaze on top and enjoy warm!
I like to press tofu by placing the block of tofu between two towels or paper towels, then placing a cast iron pan on top for weight. See my
crispy tofu recipe
for more tips on pressing tofu.
