  • Air Fryer


  • 1 16 ounce block extra firm tofu unpressed
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Montreal steak spice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat the air fryer to 370 degrees.
  • Cut tofu into 1 inch cubes, and add to a bowl. Add all ingredients to a bowl, and mix well to combine. Make sure each piece of tofu is coated evenly in spices and corn starch.
