1 block Cauldron Authentic Tofu
1 tbsp vegetable oil
Pinch of salt & pepper
1-2 shallots, roughly chopped
Fresh herbs such as sage & thyme
4 cloves garlic, finely minced or grates
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp tamari soya sauce
60 ml red wine or cooking sherry
100 ml vegetable stock


  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick cast iron pan, sprinkle the block of tofu with a little salt and pepper & place it
    into the hot oil. Gently press the tofu with a ladle to get a nice skin on the bottom layer – but be careful
    not to squash it!
  2. Once a crispy skin forms on the bottom of the block, flip and repeat on the second. You can also sear
    the sides of the tofu block if you like crispy skin all around, but it’s not mandatory.
  3. Place the tofu into an oven dish with a lid and preheat your oven to 200C. Place some onions around the tofu.
    & carrots and some roasting herbs into the dish next to the tofu.
  4. In a bowl, combine the garlic, maple syrup, tamari, wine and vegetable stock, then pour the mix over
    the tofu block, cover and place the dish into the preheated oven.
  5. Roast for 30 minutes, then remove
    from the oven and carefully use a sharp knife to score a criss cross pattern onto the top of the tofu
  6. Spoon sauce over the tofu block, then roast for another 10-15 minutes or until the tofu block is
    golden on top with caramelised edges.
  7. Transfer the tofu onto a serving dish and slice it into portions. Serve alongside roast potatoes, roasted
    vegetables and vegan gravy – or your favourite roast dinner additions.
