Pro tip, 7 minutes in the air fryer makes the BEST fried tofu

Are you looking for a healthier alternative to the fried food you love? Look no further than an air fryer! Air frying is a healthier alternative to deep-frying, and it’s just as delicious. We recently tried making fried tofu in an air fryer, and it was so good!

Preparing the Tofu

To start, you will need firm tofu. Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes and place them in the air fryer basket.

Air Frying the Tofu

Now it’s time to air fry! Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees, then place the basket of tofu in the fryer. Set the timer for 7 minutes, and let the air fryer do its work.

Enjoying Your Fried Tofu

Once the time is up, your fried tofu is ready to eat! The high heat of the air fryer caramelizes the tofu, giving it a delicious, crispy texture. Enjoy your fried tofu with ranch dressing or ketchup.


Air fried tofu is a great, healthy alternative to deep-fried food. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed!
