Szechuan Tofu and Green Bean Stir Fry

Recipe Ingredients for Szechuan Tofu and Green Bean Stir Fry

0.5 cup (8 fl oz) Water
0.25 cup Soy Sauce
0.5 oz Tomato Paste
2 Teaspoon Vinegar
2 tsp Sugars, Granulated
1 serving Crushed Red Pepper
1 oz Cornstarch
14 oz Extra Firm
2 tbsp Canola Oil
4 cup Beans, Snap, Green
4 clove Garlic
2 tsp Ginger, Ground

Recipe Directions for Szechuan Tofu and Green Bean Stir Fry

  1. Whisk 1/4 cup water, soy sauce, tomato paste, vinegar, sugar, crushed red pepper to taste and 1 teaspoon cornstarch in a small bowl. Set aside. Cut tofu into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes and pat dry. Toss the tofu in a bowl with the remaining 2 tablespoons cornstarch to coat.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and spread out across the surface of the pan. Let cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Gently turn and stir. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add green beans, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the remaining 1/4 cup water, cover and cook until the beans are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir the reserved soy sauce mixture and pour it over the green beans. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Add the tofu and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute more.
