“I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds good. In dishes like this, I freeze my tofu and then thaw it out before I eat it. For this dish I'm sure you could also use TVP, seitan, or tempeh, although the cooking times may vary.”

  1. Trim the green beans and cut each one in half. Boil them in ample water for 2 minutes and drain well. Meanwhile, cut the bean curd into 3/4-inch cubes and crush the garlic.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok. When hot, add the garlic, salt, and green beans. Stir-fry over medium heat for 2-1/2 minutes. Add the bean curd pieces and turn them lightly with the beans for 1-1/2 minutes. Pour in all the sauce ingredients. Turn and stir them together for 1 minute. Cook and turn for 1-1/2 minutes and serve over rice, noodles, or alone.
