An aromatic tray bake of tofu and sweet potato oven roasted in a bed of zesty lime and creamy coconut milk. Paired with roasted vegetables topped with fresh basil leaves.
1. Set oven to 220ÂșC.
Halve and bash lemongrass. Slice sweet potatoes into 1cm rounds. Slice spring onions. Arrange, overlapping, in a large oven dish. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Peel and grate ginger. Combine with 3 tbsp soy sauce, lime zest and coconut milk. Pour over sweet potatoes. Slice remaining lime and scatter on top. Cover with foil and roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender (see notes).

3. Trim and halve sugar snap peas. Slice capsicum. Remove tray from oven and toss vegetables through the sweet potatoes.

4. Slice tofu and coat with 1 tbsp soy sauce and season with pepper. Lay tofu on top of vegetables. Return to oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked.

5. Roughly chop basil leaves and scatter over top. Divide tofu and vegetables over plates to serve.

Try to make sure all the sweet potato is covered by the coconut milk. This will help them to cook.

If you have any shredded coconut in the pantry, scatter some over the top before baking.
