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.
