Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 9.8 oz. tofu
  • 1 ½ cups green beans halved
  • ½ tsp. chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp. tamari
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • ¼ cup roasted peanuts chopped

Instructions

  • Drain the tofu, wrap in a kitchen towel, and press gently to remove excess water. Unwrap, pat dry and slice into cubes.
  • Heat sesame oil in a large pan set over medium-high heat. Add the tofu to the pan and let cook for a minute, before turning over. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the green beans and chili flakes, frequently stirring for about 3-4 minutes, until the beans are crisp-tender.
  • In a cup, stir the tamari, vinegar, and honey; then drizzle over the tofu and beans. Stir and toss to coat, then transfer to serving bowls. Sprinkle with peanuts to serve.
