Equipment

  • EZ Tofu Press
  • Air fryer

Ingredients

  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 4 tbsp coconut aminos or gluten-free soy sauce
  • ¼ cup cornmeal

Instructions

  • Prepare your tofu by pressing it for 10-12 minutes, turning the knobs tighter every 3-4 minutes.
  • Once the 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.
  • Add the marinated tofu cubes and cornmeal to a gallon-sized zip lock baggie. Seal the baggie and gently toss to combine. The tofu cubes should be coated well.
  • Place the 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 at 370 degrees F for 12 minutes. 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 the basket for extra crispiness.)
  • When the air frying time is completed, remove the crispy tofu from the air fryer basket. Serve and enjoy!
