Cheap, soy-based tofu has a bad rap for being bland. But so is chicken breast! The trick is getting it crispy, then piling on flavor. For our one-pan meal, we dry the tofu first in the microwave, roast it with vegetables, then go heavy on zingy Sriracha-peanut sauce.

Place tofu and potato wedges in a large shallow roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil; toss well. Roast, uncovered, at 425° for 15 minutes.

  • Add carrots and broccoli to roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon more of olive oil, tossing to coat. Roast about 15 minutes more or until all vegetables are tender.

  • In a small bowl combine remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the soy sauce, peanut butter, lime juice, chili sauce and ginger. Before serving, pour sauce over vegetables and tofu, tossing gently to coat.

*Test Kitchen Tip

Be sure to use tofu labeled extra-firm. Tofu labeled only firm contains too much water and will explode in the microwave.
