Honey Garlic Air Fryer Tofu with white rice and broccoli

This Honey Garlic Air Fryer Tofu recipe is perfect for a quick, weeknight meal. Pair it with rice and vegetables or add to your favorite salad. This can also be made in the oven!

Scale

Ingredients

1 (14 oz) block extra firm tofu
1/3 cup cornstarch
spray oil (I use avocado oil)
3 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp rice vinegar
23 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp fresh ginger
1.5 Tbsp honey
optional: sesame seeds, green onions, sriracha

Instructions

  1. Press tofu for at least one hour. I cut the block in half to make two thinner pieces, place on a plate, top with another plate and set a heavy skillet on top.
  2. Drain excess liquid and then cut into bite-sized cubes.
  3. Place in a bowl and toss gently with cornstarch.
  4. Preheat air fryer at 375 F for 5 minutes. Place tofu in the air fryer and spray lightly with oil.
  5. Cook in air fryer for 20 minutes, shaking every 5 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and honey. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed and mix well.
  7. Transfer tofu to a skillet and add sauce. Saute 3-5 minutes, stirring to coat all pieces in the sauce and let the sauce thicken.
  8. Serve with sesame seeds, sliced green onions and sriracha if desired.

Notes

If you don’t have an air fryer you can place the cornstarch coated tofu on a baking sheet, spray with oil and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
