3. To saucepan, add stock and coconut milk. Simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes until slightly thickened.
4. Add green beans, bell pepper and zucchini and cook for about 10 minutes more or until vegetables are tender. Add marinated tofu and cook an additional 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro. Serve over steamed brown rice or quinoa, if desired.
