I dissolve the salt with lemon juice. I cut the tofu into cubes, irregularly to give an appearance of cheese curds. I macerated (stirring occasionally) for 30 minutes, no more, no less. I rinse thoroughly, then allowed to drain.
Preheat the oven to 450 ° F (230 ° C). I cut the potatoes into sticks, with the peel. I coat with oil and lay on a baking dish, so that they do not overlap, and that the skin side touches the plate.
Cook for 30-35 minutes until browned.
Meanwhile, I mix all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. I bring the sauce to a boil, let thicken 1-2 minutes, stirring with a whisk.
In each plate, I divided the marinated tofu, golden fries, green peas (if using), followed by a ladle of sauce poutine.
