Sheet pan meals make cooking easier than ever. This one-pan recipe allows you to make a tasty and savory side dish for your next Sunday dinner. Warm up the home with butternut squash, broccoli, and tofu baked in the oven. Then, serve the vegetables with a tahini-yogurt sauce that has a kick to it, thanks to a touch of sriracha. To top off the dish, sprinkle toasted pepitas. To toast the pepitas, spread on a small sheet pan, spray with cooking spray and toast until golden, about 3-5 minutes in the oven. Serve this delicious tofu and vegetable creation as a side dish, or try it as a vegetarian main.
