When it comes to savory, satisfying snacks, the air fryer is your friend. With a burst of convection fan power, the air fryer adds a golden crisp to most foods – even tofu! This high protein air fryer tofu recipe will fulfill your savory craving with loads of flavor yet little to no oil. While the recipe opts for a zing of heat with red pepper flakes, freestyling your flavors is highly recommended. Try Cajun, truffle, herbed or peanut-crusted – whatever brings you back for more.
