This vegan Tofu Sheet Pan Dinner recipe requires a variety of veggies, including cubed sweet potato, chopped broccoli, and chopped red onion. The veggies are lightly coated with extra virgin olive oil for added flavor.

For the crispy tofu, you’ll need extra firm tofu that has been pressed. Mix together nutritional yeast, tamari or soy sauce, cornstarch, Italian spice, salt and pepper, and extra virgin olive oil. Toss the tofu in the mixture to evenly coat it, then place it on the same sheet pan as the veggies.

To complete the dish, make a Maple Tahini Dipping Sauce by combining tahini, extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, pure maple syrup, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Thin the sauce with water to your desired consistency.

Helpful Tools

  • Baking sheets: Two baking sheets lined with parchment paper will make this recipe much easier to prepare and clean up.
  • Tofu press: Pressing your tofu before using it in this recipe will help it to absorb more flavor and get crispy when baked.
  • Mason jar: Using a mason jar to mix the dipping sauce makes it easy to store any leftover sauce in the fridge for later.

How To Make This Tofu Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe With Tahini Sauce

Preheat your oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cut your sweet potato and red onion into bite-sized pieces. Lightly toss them in olive oil and spread them out onto the first baking sheet. Place the sheet into the preheated oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.

While the veggies are baking, prepare the tofu by cutting it into cubes and tossing it in a mixture of nutritional yeast, cornstarch, soy sauce, and dried spices. Spread the coated tofu out onto the second baking sheet.

Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces, lightly toss them in olive oil, and spread them out next to the tofu on the second baking sheet.

Once the 10 minutes are up, add the second baking sheet to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, flipping the tofu and veggies halfway through.

While the veggies and tofu are baking, prepare the Maple Tahini Dipping Sauce by combining all ingredients into a mason jar, closing the lid tightly, and shaking to combine.

Once the tofu and veggies are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
