Super Easy One Pan Vegan Sunday Roast

Well, Happy Friday y’all!

We’re just about to tip on over into the weekend and I’ve got myself a perfect recipe for one of those slow, drizzly afternoons.

It’s a mighty quick and easy vegan Sunday roast, all cooked up in just one pan!

You chop it all up, season it good, toss it around, glaze it over and coat it in just a few moments.

Then you let it do its thing roasting away in the oven while you’re free to set your table, enjoy a glass of vino and take some load off.

The real trick here (a sort of magical) is this big ol’ block of smoked tofu. It’s packed full with flavor and gets an irresistible balsamic glazed crust right there in the oven.

It’s a grand meal if you’re eating solo or planning a romantic evening for two. But don’t be shy to double or even triple the recipe if you’ve got friends coming over for a cozy Sunday afternoon roast.

Serve up the tray as is and let everyone dig right in – sharing’s the southern way after all!
