Green Beans Tofu Stir Fry

After making the Curried Tofu I still have some left over Tofu. Always store the tofu dipped in fresh water and store it in the fridge. If you have to store for long time ( 6 to 7 days) then for every 2 days change the water. I was looking in the fridge for the best veggies to go with my left over tofu. And then I saw these frozen green beans in my refrigerator and then came up with this recipe. For the Green Beans usage I always use frozen green beans. These days I am much liking these organic frozen beans from Costco. I am not a big follower of organic, but i have noticed that Costco changed all their frozen vegetables to organic. Most of my frozen vegetables are from Costco, Oh yeah! for my vegetable portions I definitely need Costco Bulk size. ;-)

Enjoy this recipe packed with protein and greens with your family. If you try this once you will hook on to this and transform your Thanksgiving green beans into this. :-)

Firm Tofu - 12 Oz Packet ( 1/2 block)
Green Beans - 1 cup
Ginger - 1 inch sick
Garlic - 3 cloves
Soysauce - 1 Tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 Tbsp
Red Chili Sauce - 1 Tbsp
Black Pepper -1/8 tsp
Oil   - 1 tsp
Sliced Almonds  - 2 Tbsp


  1. Thaw the frozen green beans.
  2. Slice the Tofu into 1 inch thick strips.
  3. Take the nonstick pan and add oil to it. 
  4. Once the oil is hot, place the tofu in the pan. after 2 min turn them so that the tofu is fried on all sides. Keep the tofu aside.
  5. Meanwhile boil 2 cups of water in the pot. add salt to water.
  6. Once the water is boiling add the beans to it. After 4 min turn off the heat and drain the green beans and run under cold water.(This step will prevent from discoloring your green beans).
  7. Heat the same non stick pan and add the sliced ginger and minced garlic.
  8. Add soy sauce and green beans to the pan. Add sliced almonds.
  9. Add the tofu to the pan , add black pepper followed by red chili sauce.

That's it, Yum! Yum! Green Beans Tofu Stir Fry is ready.

Serving Tip:
Serve Hot Over Noodles or Rice. OR Eat this as a Veggie Snack. I toped with oatmeal and ate it still sounded yummy.

Sugar is the secret ingredient in this recipe. You can replace the Sugar with Honey for the sweet and sticky effect.
