  • 1 14 oz package extra firm tofu, drained and pressed (400g)
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium tamari (60ml)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sugar-free gochujang
  • 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 4 tbsp vegan mayo to serve
  • scallions for garnish


  • Slice the tofu block into fry-sized pieces. Mine were about 1cm tall and wide, by 10cm long, which is just under half an inch wide and thick, and 4in long.
  • Whisk together everything but the vegan mayo and the scallions. Spread out the tofu slices in a flat container and pour the marinade on top. It can be in two layers. Gently move the dish back and forth to cover everything. You could cover and shake the container, but the tofu pieces may fall apart! Let this mixture sit for around 10-15 minutes, so the tofu absorbs all of that flavorful goodness.
  • Lay the tofu pieces in your air fryer (you may need to do more than one batch - I did!) and cook at 350°F (180°C) for 20-25 minutes, until crispy. Time will vary slightly based on how crispy you want them, how much moisture is still left in the tofu and how big the air fryer is.
  • Mix together mayo and scallions and serve this mixture alongside the fries.
