1-14 ounce block firm tofu
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic granules
3-4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
Oil in a spray bottle
Drain and press tofu to remove excess moisture (learn more in my post about Tofu for Beginners). Cut into one inch cubes and put in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and stir to coat. If all pieces are not coated, add a little more, but avoid having a puddle of soy sauce at the bottom of the bowl. Sprinkle garlic granules on the tofu and toss to coat. Add one tablespoon of nutritional yeast at a time, tossing to coat. Keep adding more until there is a thin layer on all pieces.
Dump the tofu into the air fryer basket, including any wet bits in the bottom of the bowl. Spray a little oil on the tofu, shake and spray a little more. Set the heat at 400 degrees and cook for 15 minutes, shaking every 3 to 4 minutes. Keep a close eye and be sure to shake while cooking so that it doesn’t stick to the basket and becomes crispy.
We love to serve this on top of a fresh salad with vinaigrette dressing.
