This recipe combines the crispy texture of tofu cooked in an air fryer with the tangy sweetness of a homemade sweet and sour sauce. It’s a delicious and healthy option for a quick and easy meal.


  • 1 block of firm tofu, drained and pressed
  • Sweet and sour sauce
  • Cooking spray or oil for the air fryer


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Cut the tofu into bite-sized cubes.
  3. Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray or brush with oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Place the tofu cubes in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not touching.
  5. Air fry the tofu for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking, until the tofu is golden and crispy.
  6. While the tofu is cooking, prepare the sweet and sour sauce according to your favorite recipe or using a store-bought version.
  7. Once the tofu is crispy and golden, transfer it to a serving plate and drizzle with the sweet and sour sauce.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy!
