Crispy Air Fryer Tofu

Crispy Air Fryer Tofu
No more bland tofu! There’s nothing worse than an excellent dish, sauce, or side that gets paired with tasteless mushy tofu.
If you have an air fryer, you probably love it. If you don’t, you should definitely think about getting one. It’s a game changer and an amazing way to reduce the use of oil without sacrificing fried foods!
This stuff is seriously good enough to eat by itself, but this method of preparing tofu goes great with a lot of dishes. We used this exact recipe for our garlic curry noodles.
