32-45 minutes
Serves 4
  • Oil or cooking spray
  • 12 oz extra-firm tofu, rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp sesame seeds

Line a large plate with several paper towels, and place tofu on top. Cover with more paper towels and place a heavy item on top, pressing down on tofu. Set aside for 10-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, arrange a rack in middle of oven and heat to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. In a bowl, whisk soy sauce, garlic, honey, ginger, and sesame oil. Set aside.

Cut tofu into triangles and place in a single layer on 1/2 of prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with soy sauce mixture. Bake until golden brown on bottom, 12-13 minutes.

Flip tofu. Place green beans in a single layer on other half of baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with red pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper.

Return to oven and bake until tofu is golden brown on second side, 10-12 minutes more. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
