Crispy Salt And Pepper Air Fryer Tofu Recipe Recipe
By Peanut Palate
1 block extra-firm tofu
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1½ tbsp corn starch or rice flour
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp pink salt
1 tsp black pepper
1In a clean towel, place the unwrapped block of tofu. Cover the tofu with the towel and place a few books on it for 30 minutes, to drain out the excess water. Alternatively, use a tofu press.
2After 30 minutes, unwrap the tofu and cut it into 1-inch pieces.
3In a large bowl, add the tofu along with the oil, cornstarch and spices.
4Mix all ingredients together to thoroughly coat the tofu with the mixture.
5Place tofu evenly in a greased air fryer tray at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes.
6After 10 minutes, turn off the air fryer and flip the tofu pieces around.
7Place back in the fryer for another 10 minutes.
8After 20 minutes, the tofu should be golden and crispy. Depending on the air fryer, you may need another few minutes.
9Once the tofu is ready, remove it from the air fryer and place in a serving bowl lined with parchment paper.
10Dip in your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
