Meatless Monday: Tofu and Green Bean Stir Fry #meatlessmonday #glutenfree

Tofu and Green BeansThis week’s Meatless Monday post comes to you courtesy of San-J and Carol Kicinski, renowned chef, food writer and gluten free blogger at Simply…Gluten Free. Carol created a quick and easy weeknight dish that only uses six nutritious ingredients, which you can use as either a main or a side dish.

I always have a bottle of San-J Gluten-Free Tamari in my cupboard, which I substitute for regular soy sauce. San-J also sells an organic version, which I like even better. Both versions have a low sodium variety as well – love how San-J gives us lots of choices!

Tofu and Green Beans

Tofu and Green Bean Stir Fry

by Carol Kicinski of Simply…Gluten Free

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup San-J Gluten-Free Tamari
  • 2 tablespoons gluten free sweet chili garlic sauce
  • 1 pound extra firm tofu
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons oil, use divided
  • 1 pound green beans, cleaned trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

Directions

  1. Combine the San-J Gluten-Free Tamari with the chili garlic sauce, set aside.
  2. Cut tofu into 1/2 inch cubes, pat dry with paper towels and put into a mixing bowl with the cornstarch, toss to coat.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat until it starts to shimmer, add half the tofu in an even layer in the pan. Cook the tofu undisturbed for 2 minutes. Gently flip and stir the tofu. Continue to cook and stir until the tofu is lightly golden brown on all sides, 3 - 4 minutes. Remove the tofu to a plate and set aside. Heat 1 more tablespoon of oil in the pan and cook the remaining tofu the same way. Remove from pan.
  4. Reduce heat to medium; add the remaining tablespoon of oil and the green beans. Cook the green beans, stirring, for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup of water and continue to cook the beans for 3 minutes or until they are bright green and crisp tender. Increase the heat back up to high, add the reserved sauce mixture and boil for 1 minute or until it reduces slightly.
  5. Add the tofu and cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately.
