Sheet Pan Honey-Sesame Tofu and Green Beans

Serves 4

  • Oil or cooking spray
  • 12 oz extra-firm tofu, rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Line a large plate with several 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 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. In a bowl, whisk the soy sauce, garlic, honey, ginger, and sesame oil. Set aside.
  3. 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, 12-13 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. Return to the oven and bake until the tofu is golden brown on the second side, 10-12 minutes more. Sprinkle with the green onions and sesame seeds.
