Air-Fried Tofu Recipe

Course Appetizer, Snack
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 3


  • 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.



Pro Tip #1:
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.
