Instructions

  • The first step to make your air fryer tofu tacos is to prepare your tofu. You are going to want to press your tofu for about 10-12 minutes. Remember to tighten the knobs about every 3-4 minutes.
  • Once your tofu has been pressed, you are going to want to cube your tofu.
  • Place the tofu into a gallon sized baggie. Then add in the oil and spices. Gently shake the baggie to help coat the tofu.
  • Once the tofu is coated you, will gently place the tofu taco meat into the air fryer basket. Cook the tofu taco meat in your air fryer at 380 degrees F for 12-14 minutes. Be sure to shake the basket in the middle of the time to help prevent the tofu from sticking.
  • While the tofu taco meat is cooking in the air fryer you can diced up the cabbage, green onions and parsley. Then set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sunbutter, maple syrup, sriracha and oil. This will be the sauce you use to top your air fryer tofu tacos!
  • Divide the corn tortillas onto two plates. Divide red cabbage onto plates, followed by the tofu, the sauce, green onions and parsley.
  • Enjoy those air fryer tofu tacos! Sit back and relax!

Notes

**Don't have an air fryer? No problem, you can saute your tofu in cubes by using 2 T oil over medium heat.  Be sure to move tofu around in the pan so each side can brown.
Pro Tip: If you have a gas stove you can hold the corn torillas over the open flame to char the edges. Be careful!
Pro Tip: If you don't want to use tofu cubes, you can diced or mash the tofu taco meat with a fork to make a crumble for your tacos. This crumble will more closely represent other proteins typically found in tacos.
