Sauteed Green Beans with Tofu and Veggie Chicken

In this particular recipe, I used Annie Chun’s Chinese Stir-fry sauce as the main condiment and Quorn Tenders as an extra added boost of protein and nutrients. Generally, tofu is a great protein but I wanted to add a bit more to this dish and Quorn nuggets are also very satisfying and gives it a bit more nutrients.

Sauteed Green Beans with Tofu and Veggie Chicken:


2 Tablespoon Cooking Oil (vegetable oil preferred)

1-2 Cloves Garlic, sliced

1 Cup Quorn Tenders

1 Cup Organic Green Beans, cut each in half

1 Cup Organic Tofu (medium-firm), diced into cubes

3 Tablespoons Annie Chuns Chinese Stir-fry sauce

1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Pepper

A dash of brown sugar for taste

* Traditional Chinese food is prepared by sauteeing the garlic first and seasoning the ingredients with salt and pepper. Then stir fry for a minute or two to draw out the natural fragrance and flavor of each ingredient.


– Add Oil to sauce pan or wok and heat. Reduce heat to medium.

– Add garlic and saute until lightly browned but not burned.

– Add Quorn Tenders and follow cooking directions on package (about 10 minutes total).

– Add Sesame Oil, Salt, and Pepper and stir fry thoroughly.

– Add more oil if necessary

– Add Green Beans and stir fry together. (Add the Green Beans about halfway through cooking the Quorn Tenders)

– Add Annie Chuns sauce and stir ingredients thoroughly to coat all of the ingredients.

– Add Tofu and stir fry together gently.

– Add sugar according to taste.

– Cover and let the ingredients soften for about 3 -5 minutes.

– Remove cover and stir fry gently again.

– Ready to eat and enjoy!

This dish is best served with hot, steaming rice. You can always add/delete ingredients according to taste.

Host an Annie Chun’s Dinner Party!

I usually cook Asian food whenever possible. They’re easy to make, delicious, and wholesome. But sometimes I get a little stuck as to what to make when I’ve already done the fried rice, curry chicken, stir-fried tofu and vegetables dishes that has become our regular go-tos. Sure, fried rice is fairly easy – you just throw in a bunch of chopped veggies, eggs, and meat if you prefer, fry it together with some rice and seasonings and instant lunch or dinner! And in my house, we virtually eat rice with almost everything. Except however, my son loves noodles and prefers them over rice or anything else. So oftentimes I find myself stuck as to what to make as a noodle dish. And that’s when I turn to Annie Chun’s products.
