Just in time to keep those New Year’s resolutions on track, here’s a tasty recipe from San-J featuring tofu and green beans:
Baked Szechuan Tofu with Ginger Green Beans
Recipe by By San-J.
14 ounces Firm tofu, drained
2 Tablespoons + ½ teaspoon San-J Szechuan Sauce, divided
½ pound Fresh green beans, cleaned and trimmed
1 teaspoon Vegetable oil
2 cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon Fresh ginger, minced
Cut the drained tofu into 1-inch cubes and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of San-J Szechuan Sauce and blend lightly until all of the sauce has been incorporated into the tofu. Cover tightly and marinate for 30 minutes. Prepare a 1 1/2 quart ovenproof baking dish by coating it lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the tofu and sauce into the dish and bake uncovered at 350°F for 45 minutes.
While the tofu is baking, use a steamer rack to steam the green beans over boiling water until just tender-crisp. Set aside.
In a large sauté pan, heat the oil for 1 minute and add the garlic and ginger. Mix well then cook and stir for 2 minutes until the garlic and ginger are soft. Add the steamed green beans and baked tofu. Mix well with the garlic and ginger. Add 1/2 teaspoon of San-J Szechuan Sauce and toss again to coat with the sauce. Heat just until all ingredients are warmed. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
