Servings 2 servings


  • 1 block Firm high protein tofu
  • 2 tablespoon Gluten free flour

Marinade Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoon Tamari
  • 2 tablespoon Mirin
  • 1 tablespoon Agave nectar
  • Liquid ginger root one of my favorite staples
  • 4 teaspoon Toasted sesame oil


  • Cut firm tofu into cubes.
  • In a small bowl combine all of the marinade ingredients. Whisk until well combined.
  • Soak the tofu cubes in HALF of the marinade. Set aside the other half for dipping.
  • Add the flour to the tofu mixture. Toss well. The tofu sauce should now feel thick. Make sure each tofu cube is coated well.
  • Transfer to the air fryer. Heat at 390 degrees for 7 minutes. Toss them and fry again for 2 minutes.
  • Garnish and serve with marinade dipping sauce.


Garnish ideas: toasted sesame seeds (another favorite item), sliced jalapeƱo, or green onion
