How to Fry Tofu: For best results, the tofu should be extra firm and dry, to soak up marinade, and turn crispy in the pan.
Little or no oil is needed to fry tofu with a non-stick fry pan, but a fairly high pan temperature is best.
Kids love fried tofu, all by itself, and will reliably eat it, preferably dipped in ketchup (buy organic!). Even non-vegetarian kids love fried tofu. It's salty, crispy and oily - reminds them of fries.

How to Fry Tofu Crispy Without Oil: Use a non stick fry pan and cut the tofu in 1/2 inch slabs. Fry on medium heat with no oil, pressing the tofu onto the pan. Fry both sides until golden, about 5 minutes each side. Then marinate or sprinkle tofu with soy sauce, Braggs or bbq sauce, and fry again until crispy. Use a little oil if you prefer, but I've found this method works well, as the dry fry tofu really soaks up the marinade like crazy!
If you can only get firm tofu, make it extra firm by wrapping in a dish towel or paper towels and weighting it with something heavy to press out the excess moisture.
Different brands of tofu vary greatly in firmness. One of the best we've found is Woodstock, but you should try a few that are available in your area, to see what works best for you.
Fried tofu makes great sandwiches, especially if you coat the tofu slices with nutritional yeast before frying - as in the tofu-on-a-bun picture.
