healthy vegetable stir fry recipe with garlic, sesame, green beans, pepper, and mushrooms

Some of my favorite recipe creations happen purely on a whim. That’s how this dish was born. Creating a dish where all of the flavors and textures work in harmony takes a bit of imagination to pull together. But 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.  However, 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 is what makes it work.

This beautiful Garlic Sesame Vegetable Trio is made with Enoki Mushrooms that are 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.

I especially love that this dish is gluten-free and dairy-free for those who have these food limitations.  Make this dish as a side for my Chinese Spicy Shaved Beef Bites recipe and some rice. The flavors of each dish pair perfectly together and to create an absolutely delicious meal any night of the week.
