the source of my beans - MY GARDEN
1 block tofu, drain well and cut into
1 bunch fresh green beans, cut in half
SOY AND SESAME SAUCE MIX:
1/2 cup tamari
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. dark sesame oil
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds, toast these and let cool a bit
1 Tbsp. agave nectar
2 large garlic cloves
1 Tbsp. finely peeled and minced or grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup minced green onions
For the sauce, first toast the sesame seeds. Let cook while you mix together the remaining ingredients. Mix both together and set aside.
Cut the tofu into 12 square pieces. Put these into a baking dish and brush on some of the SOY AND SESAME SAUCE MIX. Brush on both sides. Cover and let sit in the frig.

When ready to assemble:
Steam the green beans. While these are steaming, fry the tofu in hot oil. I like using peanut oil or olive oil. Brown the tofu and then remove.
Add the steamed beans to the hot skillet and add the SOY AND SESAME SAUCE.
Stir till all is heated thru and thoroughly mixed.
Would be great served with brown rice for a larger meal.
