Stir-Fried French Bean with Yellow Tofu

Photographer: Little JF
This is a super simple dish to put together and tasted terrific. Delicious, healthy and inexpensive! Chinese heritage yellow taukwa is a kind of firmer tofu or beancurd which is orangey yellow in colour. It is available at the supermarket. Normal firm tofu can be used instead, it might look plainer but just add some shredded carrot to dazzle up this dish. If you prefer the French bean to be softer, you might need to cook it slightly longer.

Preparation: 8 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 250g French beans, trimmed and cut into 5cm length
° 1 (110g) Chinese heritage yellow taukwa/yellow beancurd, cut into small cubes
° 2 cloves garlic or 2 slices ginger, finely chopped
° 1 tablespoon olive oil
° salt to taste
° ½ red chilli (optional), for garnish

1. Heat oil in a non-stick wok. Add the garlic or ginger, yellow taukwa and fry for 2 minutes or till fragrant.
2. Add the French beans and stir-fry briskly for 2-3 minutes or until how crunchy you like the French beans to be. Sprinkle some water if it is too dry. Season to taste with salt.
3. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with red chilli and serve immediately.
