It’s to no ones surprise that we eat a lot of tofu in my  house. It’s one of Vander’s favorite foods and I adore throwing crispy  little cubes on just about everything: salads, bowls, wraps, or just  eating them straight. I was so hungry yesterday afternoon after a walk  then I dunked leftover tofu cubes into pesto while I figured out what I  wanted to make for dinner.

Yup. That’s how we roll around here. Anyways– I got an Air Fryer for Christmas and it’s been life changing for both tofu and vegetables.  I love that I can put together these cubes in just minutes– what  typically takes at least 25-30 minutes in the oven, especially if you  take into account the time it takes to preheat.

This recipe really couldn’t be easier and it’s also completely  customizable! I love using soy sauce for color and saltiness plus a  little garlic and toasted sesame oil for flavor.

This air fryer tofu would also be delicious with fresh grated ginger; or using a  different oil and seasoning. Again, it’s really customizable to what  kind of flavor you are going for. I’ve made similar cubes with a little  olive oil, garlic and chili powder that is perfect for quick tacos and  burritos.

You’ll need to press most of the water out of the tofu before using; I use a tofu press but you can also wrap the tofu in a kitchen towel and then use a heavy  object, like a book or canned goods to help remove most of the water. I  talk more about this in my how to make crispy tofu article!

From  there, cube the tofu and toss with 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, 1/2  teaspoon grated fresh garlic and a splash or two of soy sauce. Toss  until well coated, then cook in the Air Fryer at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, turning halfway through.

That’s it! Couldn’t be simpler and you are rewarded with crispy tofu cubes that you can put on everything.
