Why won’t my tofu get crispy?

You didn’t cook it long enough

Shortchanging your cook time will ensure a soft, unexciting tofu. And don’t be afraid to turn up the heat—preheat the pan to crisp the outer layer while leaving the center tender and creamy.

How do you keep tofu crispy?

Add starch. A light coating of cornstarch will absorb even more moisture from the tofu’s surface and contribute to a distinct coating. Sprinkle over the starch (potato starch, tapioca starch, and arrowroot all work too) a little bit at a time and toss the tofu, pressing gently so the starch adheres.
