Easy, but unmistakably Chinese, you will be amazed by the minimal number of ingredients used in this recipe. Stir-Fried French Beans and Garlic, as the name suggests is a combination of French beans and garlic, perked up with soy sauce. The dish gains its rich flavour from two factors: one is the stir-fry technique which unfailingly brings out the innate flavour of veggies; and the other is the topping of roasted sesame seeds.

French beans and soya sauce stir fried over a high flame make a healthy dish. Love the addition of sesame seeds for the topping.
