Air-Fried Tofu Recipe
- Air Fryer
- 1 pkg extra-firm tofu or firm tofu, drained
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil or olive oil
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp Hedessent Roasted Chicken Flavour approx. 75 drops
- 1/2 tsp Hedessent Fried Onion Flavour
- 15-18 drops Hedessent Chili Hot Flavour
- Pinch salt and pepper
- Halve tofu horizontally to create two halves like a book; place flat and double wrap in a kitchen towel or paper towels, and place a cast-iron skillet or a large plate with canned tomatoes on top. Let sit 15 to 20 minutes to absorb excess water.
- Preheat air fryer to 375°F.
- In a large bowl, stir together soy sauce, oil, Hedessent Chicken flavour, Hedessent Fried Onion flavour, Hedessent Chili Hot flavour, salt, and pepper until combined.
- Cut the tofu into cubes. Add to the bowl and gently toss to coat; let marinate for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cornstarch, tossing to coat.
- Arrange tofu in air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving space in between without overcrowding the basket. Air fry until golden brown and crispy, 11 to 14 minutes, shaking the basket and flipping halfway.
- Immediately sprinkle with more salt and pepper and serve with vegan mayo. Repeat with remaining tofu.
Going gluten-free? Toss with tamari instead of soy sauce. Pro Tip #2:
Refrigerate for up to 3 days in a container and re-crisp in air fryer for 3 to 5 minutes.
