Sooooo, as y’all probably know by now, I have a
hate love vs. hate relationship with diets and healthy eating habits. I feel so damn good about myself when I’m eating clean, but you know what else is damn good? F*cking pizza. And french fries. And cupcakes. I’ve been on a super health kick for the last couple of weeks, but then this happened. *insert dramatic music here*
Annnnnd there went my diet.
That, my friends, is the look of shame.
Anyway, I quickly forgave myself and got back on track with this kick-ass Chinese Green Beans recipe I got from BuzzFeed. I must have watched the video about 20 times before I finally committed to making the dish – and I’m glad I did! It only took me about 20 minutes to make – quick and easy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- vegetable oil
- string beans
- meat or meat-substitute (I used Morningstar Veggie Crumbles)
- red chilies (I actually used sun-dried tomatoes instead)
- chilli paste
- soy sauce
- rice wine
- white pepper
*Disclaimer – you might want to take it easy on the chilli paste. I did not – and later – I was regretful. ?????
I ate the dish as is, but it can also be paired with white rice!!!
Below is a link to the full recipe if you want to try it!
Happy cooking, loves!
