Preheat a large pan over medium heat.

Saute the onion in the olive oil with a pinch of salt until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and saute for another minute.

Add the broccoli, raise the heat a bit, and cook until the broccoli has softened.

Preheat the oven to 175.

Lightly grease a 25 by 25cm roasting dish.

In a food processor or blender, combine the tofu, vegetable stock, tahini, and lemon juice and blend until completely smooth.

Add half of the broccoli mixture, the paprika, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper and pulse a few times until well combined.

Without running the food processor, stir in the breadcrumbs with a spatula.

Transfer the mixture to the roasting dish, spread it over evenly.

Top with the remaining broccoli and lightly press into the bottom layer.


Bake for 30 minutes until golden on top.

Let cool slightly, sprinkle with additional paprika to serve.
