Great Summer Recipes
Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash and Brussels in a close up shot laid on white parchment paper

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash, and Brussels is a genuine triple threat. This dinner delight is vegetarian, full of flavor, and cooks in one pan. It doesn’t take your whole day to prepare either. At any given moment, you are thirty minutes of marinating, a few minutes of tossing ingredients together, and thirty minutes of hands-off roasting away from enjoying a flavor-packed, wholesome, vegetarian meal. Seriously. There’s really no downside to this recipe.
