Step 1

Prepare a 23.5x13.3x7 cm large loaf pan with parchment paper. Brush olive oil inside the pan to prevent sticking. Set aside.

Step 2

In a large skillet, over medium heat, add olive oil and sauté the leek until it becomes translucent. Add garlic, sage, apricots, sugar, salt, pepper, and allspice. Continue cooking for 2 minutes. Deglaze the pan with white wine, cook until the wine reduces to half the amount. Add vegetable stock, and cook for 2 minutes, add bread cubes and pecans. Allow the bread cubes to soak up the vegetable stock. Remove from heat. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Using your hands, break the tofu. Place the tofu over a large colander lined with a kitchen towel. Press down to remove as much water as possible. Transfer tofu to a food processor and add vegetable bouillon, starch, garlic powder, onion powder, and olive oil. Process the mixture until smooth.

Step 5

Add two thirds of the tofu mixture to the prepared pan. Press firmly creating a well with 1-inch walls around. Add the stuffing to the well, the gently press the remaining tofu on top.

Step 6

Bake tofurkey for 35 minutes.

Step 7

While the tofurkey is in the oven, prepare the glaze by adding all the ingredients in a small saucepan at cooking over medium-high heat until it reduces to half the amount.

Step 8

Remove from the oven and carefully invert tofurkey onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum paper. Brush with glaze and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and glaze again. Serve hot.
