  • 14 oz extra firm tofu drained and pressed
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ cup milk
  • cup breadcrumbs


  • Rip or cut the pressed tofu into bite-size pieces.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, nutritional yeast, stock, mustard, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, and milk and mix until combined into a batter. Add more milk if needed to thin it out.
  • Place breadcrumbs in a separate bowl.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 400˚F for a few minutes.
  • Dip tofu pieces into the batter, let the excess drip off, and then into breadcrumbs.
  • Spray the cooking trays with cooking spray, place the tofu pieces on top, and spray them with cooking spray. Work in batches if necessary.
  • Cook at 400˚F for 10 minutes. When time is up, shake the tray to toss the tofu, place it back in the air fryer oven, and cook at 400˚F for another 5 minutes or until the nuggets are golden brown.
  • Repeat with remaining tofu. Enjoy!
