This recipe requires just 9 ingredients, many of which I’d bet you already have in the pantry.
A few things to consider about your ingredients: Green Beans – while I opted for regular green beans, you can easily sub in French haricots verts instead! While they can sometimes be a little harder to find and a bit pricier, you don’t have to snip off any tough ends.
Extra Firm Tofu – only have firm tofu on hand? You can totally make it work! Just press the firm tofu with paper towels in a tofu press or with a cookie sheet weighted down with heavy cans. Maple Syrup – maple is my sweetener of choice, but you can easily swap in agave syrup instead. Tamari or Soy Sauce – Tamari is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. If you are avoiding soy, feel free to use coconut aminos instead. Cornstarch – if you are avoiding corn for any reason, you can use half the amount of arrowroot powder (also known as arrowroot flour) in place of cornstarch to thicken the sauce.
