If you are following a medically restrictive diet, please consult your doctor or registered dietitian before preparing this recipe for personal consumption. Airfryertofu is the quickest and easiest way to make crispy tofu, and you don’t even need to add oil thanks to the magic of the air fryer.

Super basic recipes have consistently been your favorite posts over the years, and this airfryertofu most definitely fits into that category. If you’ve never had tofu before, the first thing you should know is that you are going to need to press the water out of it.

I did this for years by placing the tofu on a plate lines with a clean kitchen towel and placing a heavy cast iron skillet on top. I recently broke down and finally bought this tofu press (affiliate) from Amazon, and I love it.

Whatever method you use, make sure to let the tofu press about 20 to 30 minutes to get the most water out of it. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered from the flavor angle.

Next, flip each of those quarters on its side, and cut each section in half, length-wise like so. Now that you have eight long pieces, you are going to shift your knife ninety degrees to make cubes.

After the tofu has marinated, take it out and drain off any excess marinade. Arrange the cubes evenly, so that the air has room to circulate.

Note: give the tofu a toss about halfway through cook time. Enjoy airfryertofu with dipping sauce, in salads, with rice, or in noodle bowls like this. Full recipe for this bowl of goodness is coming soon, FYI.

Add canned goods to the skillet to serve as weights and let press for 15 minutes to remove excess water. Cut the tofu into 3/4- to 1-inch cubes, Whisk the soy sauce, sesame or vegetable oil, vinegar, honey and a large pinch of salt together in a medium bowl.

Remove 1/2 teaspoon to a small bowl for the dipping sauce if making. For the dipping sauce if using: Meanwhile, add the mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon water, a pinch of salt and most of the scallion to the reserved marinade and mix together.

You can make crispy tofu without a cauldron of bubbling oil. Turns out, an air fryer does a stellar job of cooking up cubes of marinated tofu into perfectly browned and crispy bites.

There is something about having foods we love, but healthier like sweet potato fries, air fryer Iquitos, and more. When you air fry tofu it literally is so crispy on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside.

If you are looking for a healthy 5 ingredient meal option that is ready in under 20 minutes you have to give this breaded airfryertofu a try! Mix your flour, salt, and pepper together, then dip each tofu cube into the mixture.

Then, brush, drizzle or dip the beaten eggs over the tofu cubes. Next, place your tofu in the air fryer basket, space it evenly, and be sure they are not touching.

The result is healthy, crispy tofu that is evenly cooked in just 12 minutes! Preparing tofu in the air fryer is quick and easy with minimal cleanup.

One way is to roll the tofu cubes in pinko crumbs and skip the egg drizzle. The second way to make vegan airfryertofu is to completely omit the eggs and breading.

This recipe makes perfect classic breaded tofu, but if you’re looking to change things up you can add your favorite spices into flour. To make it spicy, try adding cayenne pepper and smoky paprika to the flour mixture.

If you want to make it a little more savory, add some Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the flour. Mix your flour, salt, and pepper together, then dip each tofu cube into the mixture.

Then, brush, drizzle or dip the beaten eggs over the tofu cubes. Next, place your tofu in the air fryer basket, space it evenly, and be sure they are not touching.

It is super easy to prepare and it turns out really crispy, tasty, and satisfying. As it is made with an air fryer, this recipe requires only 1 tbsp of oil, but you can omit it if you want to.

Besides, you can serve it with plenty of different ingredients, but one of my favorite ways of eating it is with some delicious veggie stir-fry. Stir until well combine d (photo 4) and let the tofu marinate for at least 15 minutes, preferably overnight.

Transfer the tofu cubes to the air fryer basket in a single layer (photo 5) and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown, shaking the pan a couple of times to promote even cooking (photo 6). Prep time includes the 15 minutes you need to let the tofu marinate.

If you don’t have an air fryer, you could sauteed the tofu in a skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown, or bake it at 400ºF or 200ºC for 10-15 minutes. Then remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip each of the tofu cubes, so they can cook evenly on the other side.

Feel free to add any spices or herbs you like or have on hand. This recipe will last for quite a long time if stored properly, so if you have leftovers make sure to keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
