Indulge in the harmony of flavors with our one-pan Honey Sesame Tofu and Green Beans recipe! Crispy yet tender tofu coated in a luscious honey sesame glaze pairs perfectly with crisp green beans, all cooked together in one pan for easy cleanup. 



  • 12 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry
  • Oil or cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds 



  1. Line a large plate with paper towels, and place the tofu on top. Cover with more paper towels and place a heavy item on top, pressing down on the tofu. Set aside for 10 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400°F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with cooking spray. Whisk the soy sauce or tamari, garlic, honey, ginger, and sesame oil together in a large bowl; set aside.
  2. Cut the tofu into triangles and place in a single layer on one half of the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with the soy sauce mixture. Bake until golden-brown on the bottom, 12 to 13 minutes.
  3. Flip the tofu. Place the green beans in a single layer on the other half of the baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the red pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Return to the oven and bake until the tofu is golden-brown on the second side, 10 to 12 minutes more. Sprinkle with the scallions and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
