Roasted Tofu & Broccoli with Peanut-Curry Sauce


Pressing the tofu before roasting rids it of some excess moisture for crispy results. If you have the time, let it sit for more than 10 minutes—the longer it's pressed, the better!

Active Time:

Total Time:
45 mins


  • 1 14- to 16-ounce block extra-firm tofu, drained

  • cup smooth natural peanut butter

  • cup light coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce (see Tip)

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon red curry paste

  • 6 cups broccoli florets

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, divided

  • Sliced scallions for garnish


  1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Place 2 rimmed baking sheets in the oven; preheat to 450°F.

  2. Cut tofu into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes. Arrange in a single layer on a clean kitchen towel, place another towel over it and weight it down with a plate or baking sheet and a large can on top for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter, coconut milk, tamari (or soy sauce), maple syrup, vinegar and curry paste in a small bowl.

  4. Toss broccoli with 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a medium bowl and arrange in a single layer on one of the baking sheets. Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil on the tofu, then arrange in a single layer on the other baking sheet. Return both pans to the oven.

  5. Roast, rotating the pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through, until the tofu and broccoli are crispy, about 20 minutes. Serve the tofu and broccoli with the peanut sauce and garnish with scallions, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
