  • Mash tofu with a fork as much as possible. Mix in tahini and miso paste. Season with soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Blend with an immersion blender until it is the consistency of yogurt.

  • Pour dressing over green beans and mix to combine.

You can also put the dressing in a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
