Prep

  1. Rice - (Skip if made ahead for Tuesday.) For white rice, rinse until clear. Fill a saucepan or Dutch oven (or rice cooker) with rice, water (use 2:1 ratio for water to rice), and some salt. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once water boils, stir, lower heat to a low-medium, and cover. Check white rice after ~20 min; brown at ~45 min. Rice is done when it's absorbed all the water. If it's not done, leave the cover on until all water has been absorbed. Take cover off to release steam and fluff with a wooden spoon after 5 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Tofu - If tofu is packaged in water, press out liquid first, like in this video. Then slice into 1/2” / 1.3 cm thick cubes. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  3. Green beans - Trim and chop green beans. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Make miso butter - Soften butter in the microwave. Combine butter with miso and lime juice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  5. Mushrooms / Green onions / Limes - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

Make

  1. Heat a wok or large skillet with first part of oil over medium heat. Add green beans and saute until nearly tender, ~5 minutes. (Note: Let the green beans get brown in spots as they cook, but if they start to burn add a splash of water to cool the pan down.)
  2. Add mushrooms and white parts of green onions to green beans and saute everything together until mushrooms are nearly tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Move vegetables to the sides of the pan, leaving a space in the center. Add second part of cooking oil and then tofu to the open space. Cook tofu without stirring until it starts to brown. Toss everything together.
  4. Add miso butter to the wok and toss everything together until vegetables are tender and tofu is heated through, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  5. If rice was made ahead, reheat in the microwave.
  6. Serve stir-fry over rice with green parts of green onions on the top. Enjoy with lime wedges on the side and some hot sauce if you’d like.

With the addition of hot sauce to spice it up, my family really liked this recipe.

Made half chicken, half tofu. Also subbed asparagus for green beans as that was more readily accessible that day. We loved this. And bonus that it came together very quickly without prepping ahead. Think of stir fry as the cooking method, not as a generic Asian dish.

Not bad. We added mushrooms because we had them and used asparagus instead of green beans for the same reason. It look like so much food when we made it, but there was nothing left at the end of dinner. I don’t know why I stink at tofu. it never brown stash it always just sticks to the edge. Doesn’t matter if it’s stainless steel, cast-iron, or nonstick – my tofu sticks. Other than that Dash quick and easy with prep on the weekend. Would make this again.

Once everything is chopped up, it's relatively fast to make. It's very good. Not our all-time favorite, but good.

Love how quickly this whips up, since I can prep the mushrooms while the green beans cook and then the chicken while the mushrooms cook! Tasty, light, and definitely made better with some hot sauce.
