  • 150g plain tofu, cubed (105 cals)
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic or garlic paste (6 cals)
  • 3 squirts of oil spray (3 cals)
  • 4 thin spring onions, thinly sliced (40g) (13 cals)

Dressing:

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (10 cals) Shoyu type is the nicest. Use tamari for a gluten-free option

Method: 

1. Steam the green beans until just done then cool under the tap.  

2. Meanwhile, in a non-stick frying pan or wok, fry the tofu in the oil spray until golden brown. Add the spring onions and cook in for about a minute.  

3. Mix the dressing ingredients.

4. Toss the beans, tofu cubes and spring onion in the dressing and serve.
