Simple one-pan vegan meal with tofu, vegetables, and “cheezy” no-cheese miso tahini sauce. Serve over quinoa or by itself for an easy and filling weeknight dinner. Usually one-pan vegan meals call for chickpea, veggies, and seasonings. This one, however, incorporates cubed tofu as a source of protein. The tofu browns beautifully alongside the veggies here for a protein-packed entree that’s ideal for meal prep and busy weeknight dinners. A simple dried rosemary and thyme blend keeps things cozy, fragrant, and perfectly seasoned. The trick to achieving even baking with all of the different vegetables and textures in this meal is to spread the contents between two baking sheets. Serve the roasted veggies over quinoa for even more protein or by itself for a full meal. Don’t forget the optional  drizzle of “cheezy” miso tahini sauce! It's the cherry on top of this one-pan vegan meal!
