Mushroom And Green Bean Stir Fry

green bean and mushroom

Green beans are such a healthy vegetable, full of iron, magnesium and many other minerals. They are a tasy summer treat as well and are great cooked only for a few minutes or steamed. Here’s a recipe you are going to really like, and it is best with fresh green beans. Don’t use that frozen stuff, I don’t care what they say, you can never beat fresh vegetables regardless of what the food companies will tell you. Do not tail the beans, why should you?? Just cut a millimetre off near the stalk end.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 large red capsicum (bell pepper)
  • 250 grams mushrooms
  • 200 grams green beans (fresh)
  • 3 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon soya sauce


  • Top the beans, cut in half diagonally
  • Heat oil in a wok.
  • Add the garlic
  • Add the vegetables
  • Add the sesame seeds
  • Add the soya sauce
  • Stir constantly over heat for about 2 minutes until vegetables are all tender but still crunchy.
  • Serve at once with steamed jasmine rice.
  • Enjoy!
