I think stir frys are a great way to use up leftover veggies in the fridge, which is exactly how this dinner came about.  Not to mention, usually quick.  As I was in a hurry and desperately wanted to eat something good.  Sometimes, a bowl of cereal just won’t do!  With a bunch of loose ends in the fridge dinner was ready in no time at all.  I used runner beans in this recipe, because I had them.  Don’t be put off if you don’t have them.  Use what you have like green beans, asparagus or even broccoli.  It all works!

Notes About The Dish

  • You will notice in the recipe below that I used sesame oil for the vegetables.  I love the flavour it gives in stir frys.  That being said, just use olive oil if you don’t have sesame oil in your pantry.  I always talk about substitution.  Quite often it is the key to cooking and not being put off the array of recipes containing ingredients you don’t have or have never heard of.  Sometimes it’s okay to look past the list of ingredients and try to imagine it how you would like it.

The next day you are at a loose end for dinner and don’t have much time, keep the handy stir fry in mind.  This honestly was done in 20 minutes, with no crazy rushing around the kitchen.  I have talked too many times about the reality of quick dinners.  Dishes like this one and my Citrus & Ginger Veggie Stir Fry are great for busy days. Sometimes they can be quick and tasty.  This dish falls directly into that category.  Go on, give it a try!
