Once the tofu is pressed, flip the tofu on its side and cut it through the center to make the tofu into 2 thin(ner) peices. Then cut your tofu to the size you’d like (cubes, rectangles, or triangles).
(optional step) If coating tofu, add cornstarch to a large plastic bag. Add tofu and shake to coat.
Pan Frying Directions
Add a bit of oil to a pan or skillet over medium high heat (see notes). Once the oil is shimmering, add the tofu to the pan. If using cube tofu, cook on each side for about 1-2 minutes until golden. If using triangle- or rectangle-shaped tofu, cook on the 2 sides for 4-5 minutes each side until golden.
Air Frying Directions
Place tofu in the air fryer basket and air fry at 400F for 10-15 minutes, tossing the tofu halfway through air frying.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for super easy clean-up. Arrange your tofu pieces in a single layer. Bake for 25 minutes until edges are golden.
You can sub soy sauce or liquid aminos for the tamari. Pan-frying: I use a seasoned cast-iron skillet so things do not stick, but a non-stick pan will also work here.Nutritional Info: Please note, nutritional info does not include any oil or cornstarch because they are optional ingredients.
