Green Beans with Tofu and Tahini Dressing
In Japan this is known as "shira-ae" and is made with ground roasted white sesame seeds. I have subbed tahini for that! Super delicious, amazing umami, and sooo good for you!
- Serves: 3 persons
- ¾pound fresh green beans, trimmed
- ¼(12 ounce) package firm tofu
- 1tablespoon tahini
- 1teaspoon white miso paste
- 1½ teaspoons soy sauce
- ½teaspoon white sugar
- ⅛teaspoon salt
Step 1Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add green beans, cover, and steam until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, allow to cool slightly, and slice on the diagonal. Transfer to a bowl.
Step 2Mash tofu with a fork as much as possible. Mix in tahini and miso paste. Season with soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Blend with an immersion blender until it is the consistency of yogurt.
Step 3Pour dressing over green beans and mix to combine.
