Vegan keto sheet pan curried tofu and veggies dinner

A dinner recipe that ticks all the boxes: vegan, gluten-free, low-carb, easy to make and delicious. This vegan keto sheet pan curried tofu and veggies dinner will definitely surprise you.

Sheet pan dinners are all over the place now and it’s easy to understand why. They are easy to make for both the experienced cook and the newbie but what really attracts a lot of attention is that they involve a minimal clean up afterwards. You can make them with a wide array of ingredients. There are plenty of options with meat or fish (chicken, shrimp and salmon are the most popular choices) but sometimes there’s a lack of ideas for vegan alternatives. This recipe has the perfect combination of flavour, simplicity and… it’s vegan!

To make this low carb keto sheet pan dinner, you’ll need:

  • tofu
  • peppers
  • shallots
  • olive oil
  • a good combination of spices
  • some toppings like fresh herbs and chillies (both parsley and coriander will work well in this recipe)

TOPPINGS

Toppings are essential to really bring this recipe to life: they add a touch of freshness that and crunchiness that balances really well the other spices. A bit of plain unsweetened vegan yogurt served as a side helps, too.

TOFU

In this vegan keto sheet pan dinner, you’ll need to use firm tofu. Nowadays there are a few kinds of tofu available in most shops. The silken one would be great for a mousse, sauce, soup or dessert. While the firm one is the tofu you can easily cut into slices and bake until crispy. If you like when tofu is extra crispy, try to squeeze out as much water as possible before cooking. You can do so by pressing down the tofu and leaving it like that for at least 30 minutes.

SPICES

From the name of the recipe, you can probably already guess which spices are involved in this preparation. You actually have two options: you can either use some medium curry powder or make your own mix using turmeric, garam masala and chilli powder. The first option will result in a stronger combination of flavours, while the second one allows you to adjust the amount of spices according to your preferences.

VEGETABLES

The combination of peppers and shallots is simple but rich and delicious. You can use different peppers (although the red ones are particularly tasty when roasted) and substitute the shallots with red or white onions. Try to add some tomatoes or carrots for a different twist.

How to make this vegan keto sheet pan curried tofu and veggies dinner

  • Cut the tofu into small pieces and mix it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the spices.
  • Cut all the vegetables and place them in a baking pan, then add the tofu on top. 
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, mix and bake for 10 more minutes. Cook it for longer if you want the tofu to become a bit crispier.
  • Before serving, add on top 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of black pepper, 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley and a few slices of fresh red and green chillies. Toppings are optional but they really improve the overall taste of the meal.
