Remove tofu from the package, drain and pat dry with double layered paper towels. No need to press. Cut into 1 inch cubes.


In a medium bowl, add cubed tofu, soy sauce and toasted sesame oil. Stir gently with silicone or wooden spoon in a bowl. Set aside.


Preheat air fryer to 400° F. Meanwhile, in another small bowl, add cornstarch, smoked paprika, garlic powder and pepper. Stir well, sprinkle over tofu and stir gently or toss to coat.


Add half of the tofu to air fryer basket (tight but with some space in between), close and cook at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, shaking once after 5 minutes.


Transfer to a plate and repeat this step with remaining tofu.



Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze in an airtight container or Ziplock bag for up to 3 months.
