We have veggie dish with our lunch and dinner now ever since Fiorina started on table food (which was 5 months ago already!). She loves veggie so much that I told my hubby I didn’t want to miss a day without veggie because I was afraid she might change her mind later on. I know lots of parents are trying super hard to get their kids to eat veggies.
Stir-fried green beans with chili was something that I whipped up without any real recipe, but turn out pretty good. Of course, Fiorina doesn’t eat the chili, but I was surprised she can handle a little hint of spiciness.
This is my personal easy comfort fix that I like to go with a bowl of rice and other meat dishes.
Stir-fried green bean with chili
- 1 lb green beans
- 4 shallots thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic finely minced
- 10-15 red bird's eye chili seeded and cut into strips - you can opt out if you don't want any chili
- 2 Tbsp of olive oil
- Salt to taste
Blanch the green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 3-5 minutes (I blanched a little longer as my toddler is also eating this). Drain and soak in ice cold water, drain off and set aside
Preheat a wok/pan and add the olive oil. Saute the shallots and garlic until fragrant. Add in the red chili strips (if using) and continue to saute for another minute
Add in the blanched green beans and continue to stir fry for another 2 minutes. Season with salt and stir fry to mix and turn off the heat. Serve immediately
