Crispy Tofu

You don’t need a vat of oil to get tofu crispy and golden-brown. With the XXL Digital Air Fryer, a quick toss in corn starch is all you need to give these savoury nuggets their satisfying crunch.

Product used: NutriBullet XXL Digital 7L Air Fryer


  • 2 x 340g Packages Firm Tofu
  • 1/4 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper 
  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 


  1. Cut tofu into 25mm cubes. Pat dry.
  2. In a small bowl, combine corn starch, salt and pepper.
  3. Coat tofu with olive oil and then toss in the corn starch mixture to evenly coat. 
  4. Select FRY setting and press START. Preheat the Air Fryer for 2 minutes.
  5. Line the Crisping Tray with baking paper, then arrange tofu in a single layer on the tray. 
  6. Place the Crisping Tray in the Cooking Basket and cook for remaining time. 

PRO TIP: Serve with sweet chili dipping sauce, a garlic-ginger glaze, or add to your grain bowl or salad for a crispy dose of plant-based protein.
