Tofu, Bean and Herb Stir Fry Recipe


  • 250g/9oz tofu, cubed
  • 2 tbsp soy oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 300g/10½oz green beans
  • 3 tbsp mixed finely chopped herbs such as thyme, parsley, chives or chervil
  • 4 spring onions/scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Rice or noodles, to serve


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan or wok over a high heat until hot. Add the tofu and garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes until the tofu absorbs the flavour of the garlic. Using a slotted spoon, remove the tofu and drain on kitchen paper.

2. Heat the remaining oil in the pan, add the green beans and fry over a medium heat for 4 minutes, or until the beans are lightly cooked. Add the herbs, spring onions/scallions and tamari and stir-fry for a further 1 minute.

3. Return the tofu to the pan and stir-fry for 1 minute until the flavours have merged. Season with pepper and serve immediately with rice or noodles.
