Sweet and Sour Air Fryer Tofu

Meatless Monday brought to you buy this amazing sweet and sour tofu!

I ate tofu for years when I was a vegetarian. Lots of people don’t like it, but that just means it wasn’t cooked right! I did lots of experimenting over the years and and came up with some good methods, but air fryer tofu is a game changer!


1 package extra firm tofu

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/3 cup sweet and sour sauce


  1. Drain the tofu, wrap it in a few layers of paper towel, and press it between two plates with something heavy on top. Let it press for about 20 minutes.

  2. Repeat the wrapping and pressing 2-3x to get out as much moisture as possible.

  3. Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch cubes.

  4. Toss the tofu in olive oil.

  5. Put them in the air fryer at 400 F for 15 minutes. You can bake the tofu in the oven if you don't have an air fryer, but it won't get quite as crispy.

  6. Coat in sweet and sour sauce.

Enjoy the tofu on top of stir fried veggies!
