Hoisin-Glazed Tofu & Green Beans

Tofu is a great source of plant protein and a blank slate for absorbing whatever it's paired with. This sauce is packed with sweet and salty hoisin and fresh ginger.

Hoisin-Glazed Tofu & Green Beans

Directions

  1. Cut tofu lengthwise into four 1-inch thick slices. Lay tofu slices on a double layer of paper towels. Top with another double layer of paper towels. Weigh down with a plate topped with cans to remove excess water from tofu. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut tofu into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together the water, hoisin, soy sauce, ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, if using.
  3. In an extra-large skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu. Cook, without stirring until tofu begins to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook 4 to 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally until tofu is golden brown on all sides.
  4. Transfer tofu to a plate. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to skillet. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Add beans; cook 4 minutes or until barely tender. Return tofu to skillet. Add hoisin mixture; bring to boiling, stirring to coat. Serve with rice and lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.

This was delicious and relatively simple to make. I did not have any Hoisin sauce but found a easy and good recipe on the web. I also used frozen, whole green beans with excellent results. I will do this again--probably for guests!

Outstanding Asian flavor. THe crushed red pepper was a bit intense so I will decrease next time. I served with rice noodles because I was pressed for time.
