Air Fried Tofu

crispy air fried tofu without oil or cornstarch
Course Main Course
Keyword air fry, tofu
Prep Time 6 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 package tofu extra firm


  • Drain the tofu from the package liquid.
  • Using paper towels or clean kitchen towels (that will not leave lint) press the tofu, removing excess liquid.
    I usually place the tofu before two plates and set something semi-heavy on top of the upper place like a heavy bowl or cookbook.
  • Cut the drained tofu into bite-sized cubes.
  • Air fry at 390°F for 10-12 minutes. Halfway through, pause the air fryer and toss the cubes.
