Crispy Salt-and-Pepper Air Fryer Tofu with Asparagus
This quick meal features tofu that's crispy around the edges and tender on the inside, coated in a sweet and salty marinade including soy sauce, light brown sugar, and ground Szechuan peppercorns. The perfect partner? Garlicky asparagus, which also gets flavor from Chinese five spice and toasted sesame oil. Shaking the tofu in a resealable container with the soy sauce mixture is the best way to ensure that it's evenly coated; reserving some of the mixture for drizzling on the finished dish adds a double-dose of flavor. Any leftover asparagus and tofu can be reheated in the air fryer.
