By Dani Taylor



Ingredients

1 Tbsp sesame oil

10 oz. extra-firm tofu, cubed

2 c. green beans, ends trimmed

1 8 oz. can water chestnuts, drained

½ tsp crushed red peppers

1 Tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp rice wine vinegar

1 Tbsp agave

¼ c. roasted peanuts, chopped


Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add your sesame oil.

  2. When the oil is hot, add your cubed tofu, turning the tofu until it is browned on most sides, about 5-7 minutes.

  3. Add your green beans, water chestnuts, and crushed red peppers.

  4. Stir often until the green beans are tender, about 3-4 minutes.

  5. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, and agave. Drizzle this mixture over the green beans and tofu. Toss to coat and cook for another 2 minutes.

  6. Serve and top with chopped peanuts.
