Serves 4 as a main dish, 6 as a side dish.

Ingredients:1/4 cup San-J Organic Gluten-Free Tamari

2 tablespoons organic sweet chili garlic sauce

1 pound extra firm organic tofu

2 1/2 tablespoons organic cornstarch

3 tablespoons cooking oil of choice, use divided

1 pound green beans, cleaned trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

Directions: Combine tamari with chili garlic sauce, set aside. Cut tofu into 1/2 inch cubes, pat dry with paper towels and put into a mixing bowl with the cornstarch, toss to coat. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat until it starts to shimmer, add half the tofu in an even layer in the pan. Cook the tofu undisturbed for 2 minutes. Gently flip and stir the tofu. Continue to cook and stir until the tofu is lightly golden brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the tofu to a plate and set aside. Heat 1 more tablespoon of oil in the pan and cook the remaining tofu the same way. Remove from pan.

Reduce heat to medium; add the remaining tbsp of oil and the green beans. Cook the green beans, stirring, for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup of water and continue to cook the beans for 3 minutes or until they are bright green and crisp tender. Increase the heat back up to high, add the reserved sauce mixture and boil for 1 minute or until it reduces slightly. Add the tofu and cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately.
