  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

Makes 4


  1. Slice the tofu into small rectangles and lay them on 3-4 paper towels and cover with another few paper towels. Press down gently to remove the excess moisture from the tofu.
  2. In a 9×13 baking dish, mix together the soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil with 1 tablespoon water. Add in the tofu, turning each piece to coat. Let soak for at least 5 minutes and save additional marinade sauce.
  3. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, cook tofu pieces 3-5 minutes, until golden, turning once.
  4. Remove tofu to a plate and keep warm. In the same saute pan add oil, onions, mushrooms, bell pepper and green beans and saute for 5-7 minutes until fragrant and still crisp-tender.
  5. Add ginger and cook 1-2 minutes more.
  6. In a small dish whisk together cornstarch with 2 teaspoons cool water until smooth. Stir remaining marinade into cornstarch mixture and whisk to combine.
  7. Pour marinade mixture over vegetables in the pan and cook 1-2 minutes until sauce is slightly thickened.
  8. Serve hot sauteed vegetables over 1/2 cup of Jasmine rice and top with golden tofu and fresh chopped cilantro.
