1 teaspoon sesame oil
Pinch of crushed red pepper or to taste
1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
½ cup water
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen mixed stir fry vegetables
1 tablespoon black bean-garlic sauce (can be found in local grocery stores or Asian markets)*
*To cut back on sodium, use less than 1 tablespoon black bean-garlic sauce, or simply leave out and season with low salt seasoning.
- 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, 2-3 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, 1-2 minutes.
