Cook the Book: Stir-Fry with Tofu, Green Beans, and Tomatoes

[Photographs: Caroline Russock]

One of the wonderful things about The Gloriously Gluten-Free Cookbook by Vanessa Maltin is that it doesn't rely heavily on gluten-free ingredients such as hard to find xanthan gum and rice flours. For the most part Maltin has created delicious recipes that are more incidentally gluten-free. This Stir-Fry with Tofu, Green Beans, and Tomatoes is a perfect example, the list of ingredients is minimal and they can be found at pretty much any supermarket.

Pan-fried tofu is mixed with quickly sautéed onions, garlic, and green beans and then finished with chopped tomatoes. What really makes it is the combination of rich and salty oyster sauce and a hit of spicy Thai chili paste. It's one of those dishes that is more than the sum of its parts, and has flavors that run much deeper than the few minutes that it takes to assemble.
