Press: Press tofu for at least 15 minutes, using either a tofu press or by setting a heavy pan on top of it and letting the moisture drain. When finished, tear tofu into roughly 1 inch blocks.
Marinate: In a shallow dish, stir together all Marinade ingredients. Add tofu and toss to coat. Let tofu marinate for at least 30 minutes (up to 24 hours).
BreadingStation: Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). In a medium bowl stir together flour and cornstarch. In a second bowl, whisk almond milk and apple cider vinegar to make a "buttermilk". Combine panko and all remaining spices in a third bowl.
Bread: Working one at a time, use a fork to dip each tofu nugget first in the flour, then almond milk, then panko. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray or brush each lightly with cooking oil to help them brown in the oven.
Bake: Bake for 25 minutes, flipping each over after 10 minutes of cooking.
To make tofu nuggets in the air fryer, place in a single layer in your air fryer. Cook at 400°F (204°C) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
