In a large bowl, toss together the tofu, soy sauce, vinegar, and oil. Set aside to marinate for 10-30 minutes. You can prep the bok choy while the tofu marinates.
Air fryer directions: Toss the marinated tofu with the cornstarch, then pour into the basket of your air fryer. Cook on 370° F for 20 minutes, shaking after 10 minutes. When there are 5 minutes remaining, add the bok choy to the air fryer and spray with oil (see note). Shake when there are 2 minutes of time remaining.
Oven directions: Toss the marinated tofu with the cornstarch, then arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave about ½ of the baking sheet empty. This is where the bok choy will go. Bake for 40 minutes. When there are 10 minutes remaining, add the bok choy to empty part of the baking sheet and spray with oil. Gently stir the bok choy when there are 5 minutes of cooking time remaining.
For the tofu bowls
Prepare your noodles according to package directions. Directions can vary, but this should take between 3 and 5 minutes. Divide the cooked noodles between your serving bowls.
Top each bowl with ¼ of the tofu-bok choy mixture, 2 tablespoons of the sweet chili sauce, the sesame seeds, and the green onions.
For an oil-free option, use extra soy sauce to replace the oil.
Estimated cooking time is for the air fryer. Add another 20 minutes, if you are using the oven.
Do not use canned spray oil in your air fryer, as this can damage the finish on your basket. Instead, invest in an oil sprayer, like this one.
