Air fryer  crispy tofu

This Crispy Tofu is such a tasty dish and has great texture. You’ll love having this fried tofu as an addition to any stir fry or as a gluten-free option to eat on its own.

INGREDIENTS IN CRISPY TOFU

Extra Firm Tofu - This type has the least amount of water in it, and will fry up crispy.

Coconut Aminos- We use this to marinate the tofu to give it a salty, savory flavor. If it fits your dietary needs, soy sauce or tamari could be used instead.

Cornmeal - This coating fries up crunchy and crispy on the outside of the tofu cubes.

HOW TO MAKE CRISPY TOFU

  1. Prepare your tofu by pressing it for 10-12 minutes, turning the knobs tighter every 3-4 minutes. Once tofu is pressed, remove from the press and cut into cubes. In a shallow serving platter combine the tofu cubes and the coconut aminos. Marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Using a gallon sized baggie, combine the tofu cubes (not the marinate liquid) and the cornmeal. Gently toss to combine. The tofu cubes should be coated well.
  3. Place tofu cubes into your air fryer basket. Optional: You can give a little spray of oil to the cubes to help them brown and crisp better. Cook as directed in recipe. Be sure to shake the air fryer basket mid way through. (You can also give the tofu cubes another spray of oil when you shake it.)
  4. When time is completed, remove the crispy tofu from the air fryer basket. Enjoy!
