  • 1 - 14- ounce package extra firm tofu pressed and drained well
  • 6 tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2/3 cup prepared Buffalo-style sauce


  • Slice tofu into six pieces, length-wise. Then slice vertically and again horizontally so that you have 12 pieces.
  • To a small bowl, add the arrowroot powder.
  • To a second small bowl, add the almond milk.
  • To a third bowl of medium size, add Panko breadcrumbs, olive oil, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper.
  • One at a time, dredge each piece first through the arrowroot flour, then the milk, and finally into the breadcrumb mixture, coating well on each step.
  • Set air fryer to 350 degrees F. Add tofu in an even layer. Air fry 8 minutes.
  • Remove tofu and toss with Buffalo sauce until evenly coated.
  • Place back in the air fryer in an even layer. Continue cooking another 5 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.
