The primary ingredients of these vegan recipes are tossed in a citrus spiked, marinade that is infused with hints of molasses. The sweetness of the molasses is counterbalanced by complex salt flavors of the miso, tamari, and shoyu. A toasted sesame seed backdrop adds an additional measure of taste.

Before starting, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. The squash should be tossed in a bowl with the sesame oil. Afterwards, it should be spread on a well greased baking sheet and roasted in the oven for 40 minutes.

In a medium sized bowl, the molasses, tamari, maple syrup, miso, orange juice, lemon juice, lemon zest, water, and the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil should all mixed together. The tofu should be tossed in, coated, and then set aside.

The squash of these vegan recipes should then be placed in a 2 quart baking dish, and the tofu mixture should be poured over the squash. It should be baked uncovered for roughly 30 minutes. Don’t worry. A good amount of the marinade will boil off. The finished dish should be finished off with toasted sesame seeds.
