Ingredients

    12 oz green beans, trimmed
    1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 Tblsp toasted sesame oil
    1/2 diced green pepper
    2 Tblsp mirin
    2 Tbslp tamari soy sauce
    Juice of 1 lemon
    3 scallions, minced
    2 Tblsp chopped fresh parsley
    Salad greens, for serving
    8 oz baked lemon-pepper tofu, cut into 1/4 inch strips
    1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
    Toasted sesame seeds or gomasio, for garnish (toast sesame seeds by stirring in a dry heavy pan on medium heat for a few minutes - they brown quickly and burn easily, so don't wander off!)

Directions

Steam the green beans until just tender, about 8 minutes. Run under cold water to preserve color and stop the cooking process. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the tahini, garlic, sesame oil, mirin, tamari, and lemon juice. Whisk to blend.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked green beans, the scallions, and parsley with enough of the tahini sauce to coat the vegetables. Toss gently to
coat the beans.

On a round platter lined with salad greens, arrange the green beans and tofu strips in a circular pattern.

Mound the tomatoes in the center of the circle.
Drizzle the remaining sauce over all and sprinkle with sesame seeds or gomasio.
