Serves: 4

soy glazed tofu


  • 1 (16-ounce) block of firm tofu, drained and pressed dry
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the air-fryer to 375°F. Lightly coat air-fryer trays with cooking spray. Cut tofu into 1-inch cubes. Toss tofu and cornstarch together until coated. Drizzle with olive oil, and air-fry until golden-brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Bring soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic and ginger to a boil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in sesame oil and tofu, and cook until sauce reduces and coats tofu, about 1 minute. Serve over rice. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
