Hello beauties! Is everything okay with you? Here it has snowed and it is really Winter Wonderland! So beautiful. This morning I felt like pancakes and followed a recipe by the VietVegan that I shared last year for Pancake Day: it’s my favourite recipe for pancakes, so easy to make and has a delicious result! For dinner, I wanted something versatile to use for tomorrow’s lunch and this Air Fryer Tofu by LovingItVegan was exactly what I needed.
- 16 ounces Firm Tofu Pressed for 30 minutes
- 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
- 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
- 2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
- ½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika
- 1 teaspoon Garlic POwder
- 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
- ½ teaspoon Salt
- ¼ teaspoon Ground Black Pepper Ground Black Pepper
- Press the tofu for 30 minutes. It’s ideal if you use a tofu press. If you don’t have a tofu press you can place your tofu on a plate, with another plate on top and then stack something heavy on top of that, like a heavy pot.
- When the tofu is pressed cut it into cubes.
- Add sesame oil, soy sauce and maple syrup to a measuring jug and whisk together into a sauce.
- Place the tofu cubes into a container with a tight sealing lid.
- Pour the sesame oil, soy sauce, maple syrup mix over the top of the tofu.
- Place the lid onto the container and rotate it a few times, gently tossing the tofu with the sauce.
- Add cornstarch, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and ground black pepper to a small bowl and mix together.
- Sprinkle half the spice mix over the tofu. Put the lid on the container and rotate it a few times to gently toss the tofu in the spices.
- Then sprinkle the rest of the spice mix over the tofu, seal the container again and rotate it a few times again to toss the tofu in the spices.
- Place the blocks of tofu into the air fryer in a single layer with space between each block. Make sure they don’t touch.
- Depending on the size of your air fryer you may be able to do it in one batch.
- Cook at 400°F (200°C) for 10 minutes until golden and crispy.
