  • Vortex Air Fryer


  • 280 g Extra firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce


  • Press the tofu before you begin, by wrapping the block in paper towels and putting a heavy dish or book on top. Leave these for at least 30mins if not longer to get as much liquid out the tofu as possible.
  • Once pressed, cut the tofu into cubes (about 1.5-2cm)
  • In a bowl, combine the sesame oil and soy sauce, and add the cubed tofu, coating each piece in the marinade. (If you think you need a little more, then add equal parts oil and soy straight to the bowl.) And if your not in a hurry, then leave the tofu to marinade for about 30mins so it absorbs the flavour.
  • Select the Air Fry function on the Vortex and programme the temperature to 190°C and the time to 14 minutes. Once at temperature, add the tofu but leave a little gap between each piece.
  • After 5minutes, open the tray and give the tofu a good shake. And do this again another 5minutes later (it should be looking pretty crispy by now!)
  • Continue to Air Fry for the final 4 minutes of the timer
  • Once cooked and crispy, add as the meat replacement to your favourite curry, or stir fry dish, pasta sauce or even just to top a salad!
