Ingredients

  • 1-2 tbsps coconut or grape seed oil (or any cooking oil)
  • 4-5 pieces red/green okra, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 10-15 pieces string or green beans, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 3-5 pieces garlic, crushed and sliced
  • half of 1 portabello mushroom, sliced into 1/4 inch strips then sliced into 3
  • 1/3 of a block of firm tofu, cut into 1/2 inch stripes then cut in half
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4-5 peppercorns
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos, tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup apple cider, cane, or white vinegar

Instructions

  1. Wash and steam the okra for 5 minutes, set aside. Wash and snip off the ends of the string beans.

  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. Once hot, fry the tofu on each side until

golden brown, then set aside. Fry the portobello mushroom pieces for 30 seconds per side and set aside.

  1. Using the same skillet, add 1 tbsp cooking oil and heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent (do not brown). Add the garlic, stir and sauce for 1 minute until fragrant. Add pinches of salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Place the tofu and mushrooms back into the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients (except string beans), stirring frequently until the sauce starts to boil. Let cook for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the sting beans. Stir well, and let simmer for 4-5 minutes until the string beans are cooked.

  4. Turn off the heat, transfer to serving bowl and serve.
