Combine the tofu and teriyaki sauce in a small bowl and marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
Blanch the green beans in boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Drain, then plunge the beans into ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain again and set aside.
Heat the peanut oil and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the mushrooms for 3 minutes. Set aside.
Add the remaining sesame oil to the skillet. Add the ginger, garlic, jalapeño, soy, carrots, and peppers, and cook for 2 minutes.
Add the scallions, green beans, and tofu-teriyaki mixture, and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the reserved mushrooms and cook until the vegetables are heated through, about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle with the Kaffir leaf powder, if using, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
