How to cook Grilled Tofu in an Air Fryer?.

Let’s talk about tofu. It’s used as a vegetarian-friendly alternative in sauteed and stir-fried dishes. However, making a more time-consuming meal isn’t always an option. Fortunately, it’s possible to get an affordable, healthy, and protein-rich dish on the table in a flash with minimal effort. All that’s needed is tofu and these tips on how to cook tofu in an Air Fryer.


  •      1 package extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed
  •      1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
  •      ¼ cup fresh oregano
  •      ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  •      ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  •      2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  •      4–5 cloves garlic, peeled
  •      1 small shallot, minced
  •      Pinch red chili flakes
  •      1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  •      ½ cup olive oil
  •      Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut the tofu in half down the middle width-wise.
  2. Cut 2-inch-wide chunks, and place onto wooden skewers.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place in a large zip-lock bag and set aside.
  5. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the parsley, oregano, cilantro, the two types of vinegar, garlic, shallot, poultry seasoning and chili flakes until well chopped. Here is your sauce for marinating the tofu.
  6. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while pulsing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Pour ¾ of the marinating sauce into the bag with the tofu and set in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour.
  8. Reserve the rest of the sauce for dipping on the side.
  9. Over medium-high heat, oil a grill pan thoroughly. Once hot, place the tofu skewers on the grill, and char on all sides. Serve with the remaining sauce.
