Ingredients

  • 1 block extra-firm tofu
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • 1½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 125ml milk
  • 75g panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tbsp bouillon powder

Method

  1. Wrap the tofu in a clean tea towel, then put it on a large plate with a lip. Put a heavy item such as a frying pan on top and then add cans or jars to add weight. Leave for 30 mins. The tofu should shrink in size and release its liquid. Can be pressed for 24 hrs in advance.
  2. Cut the tofu into 3cm squares or rip into chunks. Put into a bowl and toss with 1 tbsp flour and 1 tsp paprika. Set aside. Combine the remaining flour, Dijon mustard and milk in a bowl. Whisk if it gets a little lumpy and set aside. Mix together the breadcrumbs, garlic granules, bouillon and ½ tsp paprika in another bowl, then tip onto a tray.
  3. Heat the air fryer to 190°C. Dip each piece of tofu into the milk mixture, coat in the seasoned breadcrumbs, then put on a plate or tray. Continue until all the tofu is coated. Put a layer of tofu in the bottom of your air fryer basket (you may have to cook in batches) and cook for 12-15 mins, until cooked through and golden. Remove and set aside. Repeat for the remaining batches.
  4. Lower the heat to 160°C. Return all of the cooked tofu popcorn to the air fryer and warm through for 2-3 mins, taking care not to burn the pieces. Serve as a snack with your favourite dipping sauce or as a side dish to your mains.

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks

For the marinade

  • ½ tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  2. Sprinkle the cornflour over the steak and mix until each piece is coated in a floury paste. Pull the strips apart and arrange over a plate. Drizzle each piece of steak with a little oil. Heat the air fryer to 220°C if it has a preheat setting.

  4. Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a wok over a high heat and stir-fry the garlic, ginger, chilli, pepper and white ends of the spring onions for 2-3 mins until the pepper softens. Be careful not to burn the ginger and garlic. Add the vinegar, soy, sweet chilli sauce, tomato ketchup and sugar, mix well and cook for another minute until bubbling.
  5. Tip the beef into the wok and toss through the sauce. Continue cooking for another minute until piping hot, then serve scattered with the spring onion greens and a little extra sauce on the side.
