This vegan cashew tofu sheet pan is inspired by some of my favorite takeout meals. Includes a mix of tofu, cashews, vegetables baked along with a light and flavorful sauce. Comes together in just 20 minutes for the perfect dinner meal.



Sheet Pan Cashew Tofu

  • 1 (450g) block extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into thumb sized florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 medium red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


  1. Set oven to 400F. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, add your sauce ingredients and whisk until it simmers and thickens slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, break off tofu into bite sized chunks and pour over two tablespoons of sauce and toss to coat.
  3. On a lined baking sheet sprayed with oil, add your tofu, broccoli, pepper, cashews and onion and spread out evenly allowing enough space for everything to roast evenly.
  4. Sprinkle with some pepper and salt and spray the top of the veggies with a small amount of oil.
  5. Place the sheet pan in the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with remaining sauce.


Press your tofu to make sure as much water is drawn out of it as possible. This will impact the texture and whether the tofu crisps up in the oven as it bakes. 

I don’t recommend replacing the hoisin sauce, but if you can’t find it, you can either omit or replace with barbecue sauce or a little molasses. 

Feel free to sub out vegetables based on your preference. You can also sub out soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos. Also, feel free to sub tofu for chickpeas if preferred.
