REPRATION TIME:

  • SERVINGS:4 SERVINGS
  • PREP TIME:30 MINS
  • COOK TIME:10 MINS
  • TOTAL TIME:40 MINS

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb block of extra firm tofu, pressed for 30 minutes then cut into 1” cubes(16 oz.)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ tablespoon light soy sauceor liquid aminos
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil or any oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions :

  • In a medium size bowl place the pressed and cubed tofu. Add in liquid aminos and toss to coat. Add in all of the other seasoning ingredients including the oil and toss to thoroughly combine.
  • Place in your air fryer in a single row, so that all the tofu has a little bit of space around each piece. Set your air fryer to 400°F. Cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket after 5 minutes, then continuing to cook.
  • Remove after tofu is cooked. Allow to cool for a few minutes then serve. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Make sure you’re not buying silken tofu! That will yield the wrong texture and will break apart if you try and press it.
  • If you have a smaller air fryer, you’re going to want to split this into two batches because you definitely don’t want your tofu to be crowded. Give them enough space. In my smaller air fryer, I need two batches.
  • I’m sure all air fryers are different, so be sure to see if your tofu may need an extra 5 minutes. Mine was perfect after 10 minutes!
  • How to press tofu: The prep time includes the time to press the tofu
