Right in the middle of cutting the grass on a sweltering 98-degree day with the humidity at 87%, I begin to yearn for the cooler temperatures of fall.

But, this fall is bittersweet. This fall my daughter spreads her wings and sets her sights on furthering her academic life in another city. Yes, this fall I will be an empty nester and all I’ll say is that empty nesting is overrated!

Easy Sheet Pan Spicy Tofu with BBQ sauce

Thank goodness for comforting potatoes and crispy tofu – especially when they can be easily baked up on a sheet pan!

When the weather starts to cool down, I love to fire up my oven and fix an easy sheet pan meal like this.

I love this Easy Sheet Pan Spicy Tofu! It is spiced just right and filled with a smorgasbord of flavors and textures! It has crunchy pinto beans, deliciously spiced and roasted roots veggies like carrots and potatoes, tender and charred broccoli, and crisp bits of tofu, which is a popular dinner option for us.

Ingredients needed to make sheet pan spicy tofu and veggies

A tip to bake up crispy tofu…

By the way, if you would like your tofu to crisp up in the oven as it bakes, coat it with arrowroot powder, in addition to other spices you may use. When tofu is coated in arrowroot powder, it always bakes up crisp.

Drying tofu well before seasoning it.

In years past, sheet pan dinners have been an easy go-to option on a busy evening. Though they have also been the go-to option when we wanted to spend a lazy evening in front of the telly.

Veggies seasoned before baking.

Sheet pan dinners are so easy. Most of the time, I season a bunch of veggies and toss them onto the pan to roast. There have been times when I have layered the roasting process and placed certain items to bake first that needed a longer bake time.

However easy they may be, sheet pan dinners can be as delectable as a complex dish with layers of flavors and textures.

The crispiest baked tofu and veggies

Personally, I cannot wait to grab me a few bottles of Sprout’s Sparkling Harvest Apple Cider! Not only is it wonderful in a batch of Spiced Citrus Mulled Juice, but I think it would also pair so well with this Easy Sheet Pan Spicy Tofu.

Tofu is spiced and oven roasted until crispy, along with a medley of comforting vegetables in this Easy Sheet Pan Spicy Tofu dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 2 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 4 tsp coriander
  • 4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 yellow potato
  • 1.5 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce
  • 4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil EVOO
  • 3/4 cup on pinto beans
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley OPTIONAL – for garnish only
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Remove the tofu from its packaging and wrap it in paper towels to drain as much water out of it as possible.
  • As the tofu is draining, peel the potatoes and carrots and chop them into bite-sized pieces. Also cut/separate the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
  • Mix together 2 tsp coriander, 2 tsp smoked paprika, and 2 tsp chili flakes and sprinkle over the veggies. Toss veggies with spice mix so they are well coated.
  • Drain and rinse the beans and toss them in with the veggies.
  • Then drizzle in 2 tsp of EVOO on top of veggies and beans and mix so they are coated as much as possible with the EVOO.
  • Line a baking tray with foil and place the beans + veggies onto it.
  • Then, cut the tofu block into half and wrap it in paper towels. Then, blot out as much as possible from the tofu. When tofu is as dry as possible, cube each half into bite-sized blocks.
  • Mix 2 tsp arrowroot powder, 2 tsp coriander, 2 tsp chili flakes, and 2 tsp smoked paprika and drizzle over the cubed tofu. Gently toss tofu with the spices and arrowroot powder so the tofu is well coated.
  • Drizzle on 2 tsp of EVOO and toss until well incorporated.
  • Place tofu onto the foil-lined baking tray along with the spices.
  • Bake in a 425-degree oven for 25 minutes.
  • Then, set the oven to broil and broil at 525 degrees for 5-10 minutes. Each oven is different, so start checking around the 5 minute mark to make sure the tofu and veggies don’t burn. During the broil, make sure the rack the baking tray is on is about 4 inches or so from the top broiler.
  • Remove from the oven when done.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  • OPTIONAL – Drizzle on ½ a cup of BBQ sauce and toss the tofu and veggies in it.
  • All that’s left is to dig in!

    You Dear Talented Savory Soul,
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. It’s delicious, healthy and easy to make. I do not cook often and therefore not well; your recipe was a breeze to follow and tasted fabulous. The second time I pulled up your recipe I added more of the same spices with some additional veggies/stuff; let me tell you that I was shocked it worked. I’m other words, you gave me a new recipe template to practice with.

    Right on.
