Air Fryer Tofu
Crispy on the outside, chewy and soft inside, this air fryer tofu is a delicious snack, but it also makes a great addition to salads, stews, wraps and curries.
Servings: 8 servings
- 16 oz super firm tofu (or extra firm tofu. Squeeze out the water from the extra firm tofu)
- ½ tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp paprika (or cayenne, which will add more heat than paprika)
- 1 tsp garlic powder (or 1 tsp grated garlic)
- ½ tsp vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Salt to taste
Cut the tofu lengthwise into four slabs, then cut each slab into 12 cubes.
Place the tofu and all marinade ingredients in a bowl, toss to mix. You can air-fry the tofu rightaway or, if you have the time, let it stand for 30 minutes.
Place the tofu in a single layer in the air fryer basket, with a bit of space between each cube, and insert it in the air fryer. You might need to do this in two batches..
Air-fry the tofu for 12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Halfway through air frying remove the basket and toss the tofu cubes around. This is not absolutely necessary but it helps ensure the tofu cooks evenly.
Serve the air-fried tofu as a snack with a creamy mayo or other dipping sauce, or toss it into stews, curries, wraps, salads and more.
