I used to be ashamed to admit that I enjoy fried things. I really like french fries and potato chips. Before my path to health, I used to eat these things basically on the daily. I stopped for a long time, but realized I still enjoy them. And having things in moderation is ok. AND if I can find a healthier way to enjoy fried things, then that’s pretty cool too.
So this happened!!!
I’ve heard of several bloggers getting one and I wasn’t into buying yet another kitchen gadget… but a friend gave me a gift card or Christmas, so I treated myself. You get the delicious taste of deep fried things without as much guilt. Win! Home made french fries were our first attempt and it went really well. I wanted to give tofu a try. Success!
Crispy Air Fryer Tofu (serves 2 hungry people)
1 8 oz package of firm tofu, rinsed & cubed
2 tbsp nooch
1 tbsp brown rice flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp water
Combine dry ingredients in small bowl. Add the wet and stir together. Pour this over the cubed tofu and allow to marinate 30 minutes. Sprinkle on another tbsp of brown rice flour and mix it up just before putting it in the air fryer. Air fry at 350 for 18 minutes.
I wanted to throw some “fries” in there afterwards, so I actually put the tofu in the toaster oven at 200 to keep warm while the fries cooked.
Does anyone else have one of these magic kitchen gadgets???
