Spicy Green Beans and Tofu

Green beans and Tofu makes for a great meal. Like they say have more greens. This is one way to make a yummy green beans mix. I usually like to make it for lunch. The turmeric, ginger and garlic give it a lovely flavor. 

 

Ingredients (Serves 2-3):

• 1 pack firm Tofu drained and cubed

• 1 pound fresh Green beans chopped

• ½ teaspoon Ginger chopped

• ½ teaspoon Garlic chopped

• ½ Onion chopped

• 1 teaspoon Turmeric

• 1 teaspoon Mustard seeds

• Salt to taste

• Black pepper to taste 

• Oil to cook

 Instructions:

Drain the tofu and place on paper towels to dry and then make small cubes. Chop the green beans, onion, ginger and garlic and keep aside.

Heat oil in a skillet and add the mustard seeds. Allow the mustard seeds to splutter and add the ginger, garlic and onions. Stir for a bit and add the green beans. Add the turmeric and salt and stir. Cover to cook for a few minutes till the beans are soft.

Then add the cubed Tofu and stir to mix well. Sprinkle black pepper to taste and cook for about two minutes. Eat with a pita or roll into a warm tortilla or naan.
