Sheet Pan Crispy Tofu & Vegetables with Peanut Sauce. An easy, healthy dinner recipe that's gluten-free, dairy-free & vegan-friendly!

Who else loves Asian food?! {hand in the air}!

I could live on stir fry, lettuce wraps, and crispy tofu without even batting an eye. I never get tired of Asian-inspired dishes loaded with veggies cooked in bold sauces, like this Sheet Pan Crispy Tofu & Vegetables with Peanut Sauce! This recipe will make all of your dinner dreams come true!

Oh and let’s talk about peanut sauce. It’s no surprise that one of my favorite Asian sauces has peanut butter in it right?! 😉 Coconut milk makes this particular variety lusciously creamy, while hoisin sauce makes it irresistibly flavorful and slightly sweet!

Sheet Pan Crispy Tofu & Vegetables with Peanut Sauce: Method

Why make stir-fry in the oven?! Well for two reasons, 1) There will be no oil & sauce splashing from your wok all over your stove! {Or yourself}! i.e. less mess to clean up!  2) Roasting the tofu and veggies in the oven creates a crispy texture that is SO delicious!

I love eating tofu but it has to be crispy. When we go out I order it “well done.” That’s why, in this Sheet Pan Crispy Tofu & Vegetables with Peanut Sauce recipe, the tofu is roasted alone before the rest of the vegetables and sauce are added to the pan.

To keep everything extra-crispy {do you sense a theme in this recipe?! I wonder how many times I can use the word crispy in one post. Let’s see}, wait to add the sauce until the veggies & tofu are golden-brown. By tossing it in during the last 10 minutes of baking, the peanut sauce has time to thicken up just enough to coat all the ingredients beautifully without making them soggy.

Sheet Pan Crispy Tofu & Vegetables with Peanut Sauce: Substitutions

All right folks, as always this dish is best as written! But here are a few potential substitutions!

Veggies. I used our three favorite stir-fry veggies in this recipe! You can change it up to suit your tastes! Other recommendations: baby corn, snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, etc.

Coconut milk. If you don’t have coconut milk water can be used instead. However, the coconut milk gives the sauce a rich and creamy texture that is SO good! If you are wondering what to do with the extra coconut milk…try this recipe {or this one}!

Sesame oil. Really, any oil can be used here. However, sesame oil has such an amazingly bold and rich taste that I don’t recommend skipping it. If you have to, peanut oil would be my second choice!

Honey. To keep this recipe vegan use pure maple syrup, or another liquid sweetener of your choice!

I beg you not to omit the hoisin sauce! It is my all-time favorite Asian condiment. Please go buy some, use it in everything, and thank me later! {here’s a link to my favorite brand}!
