OK, so this is not so much a ‘recipe’ as it is just something I’m totally obsessed with right now. Ha! As many of you know, I got an air fryer around Christmas this past year and I’m pretty obsessed with it. You can see
First off, whether you are a meat eater, mostly plant-based, 100% vegan, whatever—I love tofu and think you should too. I certainly don’t think you should eat it exclusively, as there are lots of great protein sources in the world. But tofu, and soy in general, is pretty awesome and you can read an article Lindsey (one of the dietitians we work with) wrote here called:

And if that doesn’t convince you, just wait until you see how easy this tofu is to fry. I like to use extra firm tofu. Drain by pressing between two plates and either paper towels or clean kitchen towels to soak up excess moisture. Here you can see how I do it.
Then cut into small, bite-sized pieces and air fry at 356°F for 10-12 minutes. In the middle, give the tofu a good shake so all sides will get air fried evenly. That’s it! No extra ingredients—just crispy tofu ready for use! xo. Emma
