Umami Air Fryer Tofu

I love tofu in the air fryer because it creates a nice crispy outside. Second City Prime Umami sauce gives the tofu a perfectly balanced sweet and savory flavor too. This dish is super simple.

Yield: 8 pieces
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • Second City Prime Umami Sauce
  • oil in a non-aerosol spray can


  1. Drain tofu and wrap with a cotton tea towel. Place between two cutting boards and set a heavy cookbook atop for about 30 minutes. The weight of the cookbook will drain the excess water out of the tofu so it can absorb the sauce.
  2. Pre-heat air fryer to 400 degress.
  3. Unwrap tofu and slice in half horizontally and then into 4 triangles creating 8 pieces. Brush both sides of pieces with umami sauce and spray with oil.
  4. Lay tofu in single layers in airfryer basket and cook for about 20 minutes. (Check at 10 and 15 minutes and reduce heat if necessary.)
