Directions

* Note: Wasabi (horseradish) paste is sold at Japanese markets and some supermarkets. Combine first 5 ingredients in blender. Add 1 3/4 cups water and blend until smooth. Transfer batter to shallow dish. Whisk soy sauce, lime juice, wasabi and red pepper in small bowl to blend. Cut tofu horizontally into 1/2-inch-wide slices. Cut each slice into 1/2-inch-wide logs. Arrange tofu in single layer on several layers of paper towels. Cover with paper towels. Let stand 1 hour. Pour enough oil into heavy large Dutch oven to reach depth of 3 inches. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Working in batches, dip beans into batter, shake off excess and add to oil. Fry until golden, stirring often, about 3 minutes per batch. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels; drain. Repeat with tofu and batter. Serve beans and tofu with sauce. This recipe yields 6 servings.
