Sarahn’s Tip: Cut the stem ends off of the green beans before you put them in water. They taste the same either way, but they're easier to eat stemless.


Sarahn’s Twist: THIS WHOLE RECIPE WAS MY TWIST! I created this recipe and free handed all the seasoning! So delicious!


Sarahn’s Taste: I would have like for the tofu to be a little more cooked. Tofu is tricky, but try throwing the tofu in a few minutes before the mushroom and the green onion. You can also cook it for a shorter period of time if you like your tofu soft. #sarahnsays
