1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup tamari soy sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Chinese chili paste with garlic
8 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon 5-spice powder
2 cups toasted pecan pieces

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. In a 2-cup bowl, whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, chili paste, garlic, and 5-spice powder. Pour over the Tofurky, coating all surfaces.
2. Cover Tofurky and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
4. Drain the Tofurky and place on a rack in a large, shallow roasting pan.

6. While the roast is in the oven, toast the pecan pieces in a heavy skillet over low-medium heat until lightly toasted. Set aside.
7. Allow the roast to rest for 10 minutes before serving with Tofurky Giblet & Mushroom gravy or other vegan gravy. Sprinkle with toasted pecan pieces.
