Ingredients, Serves 4:
- 1 lb french green beans (haricot vert)
- 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
- 1/2 lb Chinese five spice tofu cut into strips(can be purchased at your local asian market)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVO)
If your beans are not already trimmed, trim both ends. Boil a large pot of water and blanch the green beans for 3 minutes. Strain and place in ice water bath to cool them quickly.
In another large pan, heat the EVO on medium high heat until hot. Add the tofu and cook for 2 minutes. Add the green beans and sesame seed oil and stir for 2 more minutes until everything is hot. Salt and pepper to taste. Plate and serve! Yummie!
