"The Gloriously Gluten-Free Cookbook," compiled by Vanessa Maltin and published by Wiley, shares this recipe from the kitchen of Chef Katie Chin of Thai Kitchen. It is a light but satisfying vegetarian dish.


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 10 ounces tofu, cut into 1 x 1 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh green beans, ends broken off
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Thai Kitchen chili sauce
  • Cooking Directions

    1. Heat a large wok or nonstick skillet over high heat (it is easier to cook tofu in a nonstick pan). Add 2 tablespoons of the oil and then the tofu. Cook the tofu for about 2 minutes, then carefully turn it over and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes more.

    2. Add the oyster sauce and gently simmer, making sure the tofu doesn't break into pieces, for about 2 minutes. Remove the tofu and place on a platter.

    3. Lower the heat to medium-high. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, the beans, onions, and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the stock, cover, and cook for 1 minute more.

    4. Uncover and continue to cook, stirring, until all the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and chili sauce and stir until well mixed, about 1 minute. Return the tofu to the pan and gently mix together before serving.
