Tofu in the air fryer! Say what?! Oh yes, I went there. Spoiler alert: It was a good flavor, but the texture was strange. But def something for my vegetarian watchers to try!
Thank you community member Lula Mame for requesting this! Recipe from Hello Spoonful.
Air Fryer Tofu with Honey Garlic Sauce
- 14 ounces extra firm tofu
- 1 tbsp Corn Starch
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
- 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- Cooking Spray
- Honey Garlic Sauce
- 3/4 Cup Chicken Broth
- 1/3 cup Honey Can add more if you like it sweeter!
- 2 tbsp Soy sauce
- 2 tsp Garlic minced
- 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1/2 Tbsp Cornstarch
- 1 Tbsp Water
Lay the tofu in the center of a clean thin dishtowel and gentle press to remove excess moisture. Cut the tofu into ~1 x1 inch pieces.
- Place the squares in a large bowl or a large ziploc bag. Add the cornstarch, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, and salt. Toss or close and shake the bag until the tofu is completely coated.
- Spray the basket of the air fryer and place the cubes in a single layer. Spray the tops of the tofu with cooking spray oil spray. Set the air fryer at 360F for 18 minutes. After the 10 minutes, give the basket a shake. Arrange tofu back in a single layer across the basket and cook for another 8 minutes at 360F.
- While the tofu is frying, combine chicken broth, honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer sauce, stirring often, until flavors combine, about 5 minutes.
- Whisk water and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Pour into the saucepan; simmer until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
- When the tofu is done frying. Place in the bowl with 1/2 cup honey garlic sauce and toss.
