Air Fried Tofu

9:00 AM

I've written about this in the past but we have a small house and a gas stove, so in the summer it is BRUTAL to run that sucker because it heats the whole house up to 80-degrees. Which is no bueno in Florida in the middle of July.

This Air Fryer is going to be my saving grace come the summer because I will now use this to compensate for my oven. However, that doesn't mean I'm not getting it up and running now. 
I've obviously have made fries in it as its the quickest and tastiest way to make them, but I've also made Tofu in it.
Yes. Air Fried Tofu. And it's as tasty and crispy as it sounds!

Easy Air Fried Tofu
You'll never want to cook your tofu any other way again after you make it in the Air Fryer.
  • 1 Block Firm Tofu*
  • 2 Tablespoons Gluten Free Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon CornStarch
Make sure your tofu has been drained and dried. Cut into 1inch cubes (if not already pre-cut; see notes)In a bowl mix together the tofu, soy sauce, vinegar, and oil.Set aside and let it marinate for 15-30 minutes (the longer the better).After marinating add in your cornstarch and toss. This will help absorb the liquid and give it crunch in the fryerNext, add the tofu to your air fryer and cook for 30 minutes on 370Check on it periodically, tossing the tofu it if starts to stick. Serve any way you'd like. I personally love mine over some rice with gluten free Teriyaki sauce.
Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Yield: 4 serving

NOTES: I personally love this type of already cubbed tofu. It's perfect for this!
