Roasted Tofu And Potatoes

I love crispy roasted potatoes! I could, for sure, have them in a big bowl for dinner and be perfectly happy. Nothing else needed! But, being an adult, I reluctantly accept I might need something else. So, I came up with this simple roasted tofu and potatoes recipe, perfect for stress-free weekday dinners.

About pressing the tofu: I know we should do it, I sometimes do, and I frequently don’t. It is still delicious, and we all been a bit too tired or a bit too lazy to spend more than five minutes prepping dinner. Here’s my point: you may skip this step if you’re in a hurry or just a bit lazy. Just make sure you buy firm tofu.

  1. 200F is too low. Very thinly sliced potatoes were not done in 45 minutes. Usual roasting temperatures for sliced potatoes average around 400F.

    1. Hi there! It’s 200ºC, not 200ºF. I’ve edited the recipe and added the C to make it easier :).
