Make

  1. Heat oven to 450F / 232C. Place one oven rack in the top third and another oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Set out two sheet pans.

  2. Line the first sheet pan with foil. Spray the foil with some nonstick cooking spray or brush it with some oil. Spread the tofu out in a single layer. Season the tofu with some salt and pepper. Roast tofu until it is starting to brown around the edges, ~20 minutes. 

  3. Once the tofu is baking, spread the frozen fries out on a sheet pan. Spray the fries lightly with nonstick cooking spray and then sprinkle furikake over top. Bake on the lower rack of the oven until golden and crisp. (Check package directions for recommended cook time.)

  4. After the tofu has been cooking for 20 minutes, remove it from the oven and brush it generously with glaze. Return the tofu to the oven and continue baking until the glaze is bubbling and golden, ~5 minutes. 

  5. Serve fries and vegetables with Gochujang mayo for dipping. Top tofu with green onions and enjoy it on the side.
