Drain tofu. Season both sides with salt and pepper and place in a single layer on one side of prepared sheet. Spread vegetables in a single layer opposite tofu.
Roast, stirring vegetables occasionally, until vegetables are tender and tofu is lightly browned, 20–25 minutes.

Divide among plates. Drizzle with sauce. Garnish with remaining 1/4 cup cilantro.
