Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Fold a clean dish towel in half; place tofu on towel, then fold towel over tofu. Set a plate and two heavy cans on top. Let sit for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together hoisin sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, honey, and Sriracha sauce. Set aside.

  • Cut tofu into 3/4-inch cubes; toss with cornstarch. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add tofu in a single layer. Cook until golden brown on bottom, about 2 minutes; toss. Continue cooking and turning until browned on most sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add green beans and the water to skillet. Cover and cook 1 minute. Add ginger and garlic. Cook and stir until beans are tender and slightly charred, about 4 minutes.

  • Return tofu to skillet; add sauce and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Serve over hot rice.
