Tofu and String Beans Teriyaki

Well I ran 20 miles yesterday then decided to eat an entire large pizza and crazy bread from Little Ceasers. I had to make up for that today and found a great recipe to do so. I've been experimenting with tofu for about a year with out much success. I found this recipe on Post Punk Kitchen. The site is devoted to vegetarian cooking and vegan baking.

1 tsp olive oil
1 lb. of Extra Firm Tofu, cut in approx 1 in wide and 1/2 in thick slices
1 lb. of String Beans, snapped
4 cloves of garlic, minced (or to taste)
Teriyaki Sauce
1 package of buckwheat soba noodles


In a frying pan, put your olive oil and tofu. Brown your tofu. Whilst your tofu is browning, put on a pot of boiling water. When it boils, throw in your string beans and noodles for 5 minutes (how convenient, they both take 5 minutes!). When done, strain, rinse with cold water and set aside.

When your tofu is brown, take it out of the pan and set it aside. Put in your garlic and brown for a minute. Then throw in your string beans and noodles and stir fry for a few minutes. Add back the tofu and coat everything with a nice glaze of teriyaki sauce. Cook until it all thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.
