It’s our first sheet pan meal of 2020!
Can you believe it took us a whole month to share one?! Me either.
I would say we have a sheet pan meal in my house at least once a week. It’s for those days when I know it’s going to be a tad crazy and I need something I can just throw in the oven and forget. Kind of reminds of that infomercial – “set it and forget it!”
Side note: Does anyone have one of those super amazing looking rotisserie machines? Tell me, is it really as good as advertised? I always wanted one, but who has room in their kitchen for a counter top rotisserie? I don’t even have room for a counter top toaster oven!
So, because I am rotisserie oven-less, the sheet pan meal is my version of a “set it and forget it” type of meal. And while this Curried Tofu and Sweet Potato Sheet Pan Meal is lacking in the rotisserie roasted chicken scent, the aromas coming out of your oven are seriously intoxicating.
I love the combo of cauliflower, sweet potato and curry, but you could sub in pretty much any vegetable under the sun here. I did break one of my rules and crowded the pan a tad. But don’t fret. Everything still cooked up nice and brown and tender. But if you are a stickler for kitchen rules, you could divide the ingredients among two sheet pans. No extra work or hands on time required.
This yogurt tahini sauce kind of makes it, so don’t leave that out. It really compliments the curry flavours so actually, now that I’m thinking about it, you should probably whisk up a double batch. Because , and I can speak from experience here, you are going to be tempted to eat this stuff straight from the bowl.
As I was serving a family with two kiddos who aren’t usually curry fans, I left some of my pan seasoned simply with canola oil and salt. It’s our fool-proof strategy for feeding a family – deconstruct it and be considerate to their tastes. No need to cook up three separate meals. Ever.
They also preferred their half with ketchup. More yogurt tahini sauce for me!
