Some of my favorite recipe creations happen purely on a whim. That’s how this dish was born. Although it takes a bit of imagination to pull together a dish where all of the flavors and textures work in harmony, when it works, it really works. As a rule, I try to incorporate global flavors into most of my dishes to experience food from a different perspective, but there are times when it’s really best to keep it simple. In this case, the combination of fresh organic vegetables paired with garlic and shallots have enough of their own distinct flavor that enhancing rather than changing the flavor makes it even better.
I created this gluten-free, dairy-free dish as a side for the Chinese Spicy Shaved Beef Bites recipe on my blog. The flavors of each dish pair perfectly together. This beautiful vege trio is made with Enoki Mushrooms often used in Chinese cuisine for soups and stews. What I like most about this mushroom is the subtle flavor and tender texture that lends to the dish itself. Combined with lightly crunchy green beans and sweet peppers, it makes the perfect side dish for fish, beef, and poultry, or serve it with a bed of quinoa or rice for a simple, yet flavorful vegetarian meal.
