Ingredients

  • 3/4 package House Foods Tofu Medium Firm
  • 1 1/2 Pound green beans, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 1/2 Cup cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Cup fried onions
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/8 Teaspoon cayenne
  • 3/4 Cups vegetable broth

Preheat oven to 400F.

Fill large stock pot with water and bring to a boil with a pinch of sea salt. Add green beans and cook for 5 minutes, then strain.

Meanwhile, cook onions with olive oil over medium heat until soft, then add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne and cook another 3 minutes.

Deglaze pan with half of the vegetable stock, saving other half for the tofu. Sprinkle flour over the pan and stir to create a sauce.
