  • Air Fryer
  • Tofu Press (Optional but handy!)
  • Sesame Oil
  • Coconut Aminos



  • 1 14-ounce block of tofu, extra firm pressed and drained



  • Using a tofu press or a very heavy pot placed on top of the block of tofu, press the tofu and allow the excess moisture to drain.
  • While the tofu is draining, in a small bowl combine all remaining ingredients. Whisk to combine.
  • Slice pressed tofu into 1/2-1" cubes. Place into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle marinade over the tofu and toss to coat. Let sit and marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
  • Place marinated tofu into air fryer basket or tray. Air fry for 15 minutes or until golden and crispy on the outside, shaking the basket/tray once in a while to ensure even cooking.
  • Let cool slightly and enjoy!
