Schezwan Tofu – Cooked in Airfryer in 10 minutes

This Schezwan Tofu cooked in the Air fryer is the holy grail of quick and easy cooking. Took me 10 minutes to cook from start to end, 5 minutes to eat, and 0 minutes of guilt! And all day of pride and accomplishment for finally nailing down how to make Tofu look exactly like this!

Ingredients and Method to cook Schezwan Tofu

I used One Block of Extra-Firm Tofu. Drain all the water and Cut in 1.5” pieces. Mix in this Schezwan sauce and Salt and Pepper.

Notice: No corn flour, no Soy Sauce, none of the bells and whistles. Simple is Delicious.

Grease the Air Fryer Basket and Preheat at 390 F. Yes. Do not skip this step. You do not want the Tofu Cubes sticking on to the basket.

Put the Tofu cubes in air fryer basket for 8 minutes. More if you like yours more crispy. But mine was perfect at 8 minutes!

What do you eat your tofu with?

Typically I would make this with vegetables such as bell peppers, bok choy, onions and tomatoes. And I would almost always end up breaking the Tofu. Not today. This was an absolute perfection. So much so that I did not bother pairing this up with anything. I gobbled it all up as soon as it became cool enough to eat!

My best bet would be to pair this up with any of the bok choy recipes I have on here. Bok Choy and Red Cabbage.
