Szechuan Tofu & Green Bean Stir-Fry

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (191 votes)

This spicy vegetarian stir-fry is a great way to use green beans when they’re bountiful and inexpensive at the supermarket. You can also try it with other vegetables, such as broccoli or peppers, just make sure to cut them into small pieces so that they cook quickly. Coating the tofu in cornstarch before you cook it gives it a light crust.

surprisingly yummy! :)

I was surprised by how tasty this recipe was given the limited ingredients. This would be good adding something likse sliced red bell pepper and/or shitake mushrooms as well for some additional intrigue.

easy, healthy

Super delicious and very versitile!

I recomend this sauce for a variety of proteins and vegetables! I made it with chicken, red and yellow peppers, onions and mushrooms and it was FANTASTIC! I have tried other combos as well. The sauce is just SO good and SO easy. As long as the apprx amounts of veggies (4cups) and protein (little less than 1lb) are the same, it works!

The US RDA of sodium for

The US RDA of sodium for adults is 2,400 mg, but most physicians lean toward 2,000 mg. A single serving of this dish gives you within 1/3 of the requirement, regardless of which guideline you follow. Those amounts are for individuals who are not required to reduce their daily intake of sodium. Do some online research: soy sauce that is much lower ini sodium (145 to 390 mg/sodium per tablespoon) is available.

Like many others, I'm not a huge fan of tofu. This was really delicious though, I loved it. I substituted rice vinegar and it was pretty quick to make.

My husband is not a big fan of tofu, but he will eat it prepared in this style. This is my favorite way to prepare tofu (diced, tossed in corn starch and browned) and typically how we eat it, with various sauces. The sauce was good - nice and spicy as I was generous with the pepper flakes. I would make this again, and like other reviewers I would add other veggies too, like snap peas or broccoli as we like lots of veggies.
