Asian Green Bean Stir Fry

Here is a recipe for my dinner last night. Let me just say it was very good! I won't even say any more, I'll just dive right into the recipe.

Asian Green Bean Stir Fry
4 servings, 1 cup each

1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
Pinch of crushed red pepper, or to taste
1/2 cup water
1 14-ounce can mixed stir-fry vegetables, rinsed, or 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed stir-fry vegetables, thawed
1 tablespoon black bean-garlic sauce (found in the ethnic food section of the grocery store. Look real hard, it may be hiding right in front of you!)

1.Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Add water, cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes for tender-crisp or 6 minutes for tender. Uncover, increase heat to medium-high, add stir-fry vegetables and black bean-garlic sauce. Cook, stirring often, until heated through and most of the liquid has evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes.

How awesome is the recipe?! And how awesome is it that it's only 59 calories!! I love that! It really is this easy. The taste is really good, with a dash of soy sauce it makes it that much better! I would suggest to serve this with vegetable fried rice (I've made this recipe too, and it's real good!), and add chicken to the vegetables, and there is your meal right there for you! Bada-bing, bada-boom.



Happy eating!
