Be aware 1 on Tofu: The vacuum sealed additional agency tofu is superb as a result of it’s not solely agency however drier than the type that comes sitting in water. For those who can’t discover the vacuum sealed tofu packages, that’s wonderful – search for additional agency tofu after which press the tofu for a bit to take away extra moisture. To do that, I lower the block of tofu into a couple of slices, lay them flat with paper towels on high and backside, and set a heavy pan on high for a couple of minutes. I discover that this tofu additionally crumbles extra simply – so if you’re tossing the tofu within the batter, use a large spatula and simply make a couple of light turns within the bowl to keep away from crumbling the tofu fully (however don’t fear, some breaking is regular and can kind scrumptious crumbles – promise).

Be aware 2 on Dietary Yeast: I really like dietary yeast on this for the savory, salty taste and distinctive texture it provides to the tofu! I acquired that concept from Liz at Zardy Plants. However it would nonetheless work with out dietary yeast. To make this with out dietary yeast, you may simply omit it and improve the cornstarch to three tablespoons, or change the dietary yeast with breadcrumbs.

Be aware 3 on Spices: I take advantage of and love this rotisserie chicken seasoning for each the air fryer hen and now this air fryer tofu. For those who don’t have a spice mix that you simply like, use 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. And in case you are utilizing a spice mix that doesn’t have salt, it’s possible you’ll wish to add an additional pinch of salt to the tofu batter.

Be aware 4 on Sauces: I’ve been hung up on this gochujang sauce for a minute. It’s so good to toss with the crispy tofu. Combine the next: 1/2 cup mayo, 2 tablespooons gochujang sauce (not paste), 1 clove grated garlic, a shot of soy sauce, a splash of rice vinegar, and salt and pepp. I cowl the tofu in sauce and toss it collectively after the tofu is completed let it type of soften in so it creates nearly a glaze-like consistency on the skin of the tofu. It’s SO good on a rice bowl. Different sauces I like: this store-bought mango chutney, this honey mustard, or this peanut sauce.

Be aware 5 on Air Fryer Temp: I’ve each a Cosori 4 quart air fryer in addition to a Ninja 5 quart air fryer (affiliate hyperlinks). My Cosori does this tofu completely at 400 levels with the timing above, whereas the Ninja does it completely at 390 levels. For those who cease and shake the tofu after 8 minutes and you’re feeling prefer it’s a tad too darkish golden at 400, simply cut back the temp barely for the final 5 to search out your excellent temp. I might shoot for something within the 375-400 vary. Air fryer temps and efficiency will differ barely!
