How you can Make This Sheet Pan Dinner

To start out, we press the tofu to take away extra moisture, which helps it crisp up within the oven. In the event you don’t have a tofu press, right here’s a hack: Wrap the tofu in a dish towel and set one thing heavy on high (like a forged iron skillet).

Subsequent, we chop the candy potato into wedges, the cauliflower into small florets, and thinly slice the crimson onion.

Candy potato additionally provides loads of potassium, vitamin C, B6, and beta-carotene (which converts to vitamin A in your physique). Vitamins galore proper right here!
