Way back, I’m one of those ordinary kids who will notoriously exchange meals to candies and will throw tantrums when not granted. I’m also a picky eater who hated many vegetables.

However, not string beans. I love them even when I was a kid with meticulous and sensitive tastebuds. I will easily dig them because of the crunchy skins, jelly-like inside, and flavor-bursting seeds.

However they are cooked, I’ll eat them. My favorite way is adobo and I’ll feature it this time with fried tofu, which is also my favorite.


  • 2 bundles of string beans – remove the top and bottom part and slice them.
  • 200 grams tofu (1 square) – chop into small cubes
  • 1 medium red onion – chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • oil
  • laurel leaves
  • peppercorn


  1. Fry the tofu and let it sit in a strainer.
  2. Saute garlic and onion.
  3. Add the string beans and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add the water, soy sauce, white vinegar, sugar, and laurel leaves. Stir while boiling
  5. Put the peppercorn and let it simmer.
  6. Turn the fire to low. Then, add the tofu and continue to stir.
  7. Serve and enjoy.

Adobong Sitaw with Tokwa


  • The size of the string beans is based on your preferences.
  • Don’t overcook the string beans to retain the flavor and vitamins.
  • You can also adjust the sugar. If you want it sweet then add some more.
  • If you prefer it with thick sauce, allow a few more minutes for step 4.
  • This Adobong Sitaw With Tokwa is best consumed immediately. Otherwise, the tofu will absorb the sauce, which is not that good anymore.
