Stir-fry Two Kinds of Beans with Shrimp

Last week I harvest this bunch of organic string bean from my vegetable garden .These days I try to encourage Mishu to eat vegetable but sadly she not really interested..She told me vegetable is yikes!! all she ate is the shrimp and sauce from this cooked vegetable with her rice.Well, I also mixed with some leftover snow pea to cook this twosome vegetables dish .This time I add in some soy sauce to stir-fry this twosome which is really great!


1 bundle string bean,about 1/2 lb,remove tip from both end,cut 3 inch length and washed

1 cup snow pea,removed both end by pulling the string from the tip,washed

6 large shrimp,clean and deveined

3 fresh cloves garlic,peeled and sliced

3 tbsp soy sauce

3 tbsp water,plus extra if too dry

1 tsp chicken bouillon powder

2 tbsp olive oil


1:Heat large skillet at medium high heat with olive oil and sliced garlic till lightly golden brown,then add in shrimp,fry for 1 minute or till curl
2:Add in string bean,snow pea,chicken bouillon powder,soy sauce and water.If you want the bean crunchy and crisp cook less than 5 minutes.If not cook longer and add in extra water to cook.Stir all the ingredients from time to time well.
3:Check the seasoning before remove from heat.Dish out and serve warm with rice .

You have to encourage Mishu to eat more veggies. Maybe try disguise it by cutting really tiny or grating it.
