Stir-fried beans and beansprouts

Small, thin French beans are best for stir- frying and they will give the crunchiest result. Choose button mushroom for this recipe - they make an attractive addition and will give the dish a lighter colour.
This crunchy dish makes an excellent accompaniment to roast or grilled meats, particularly steaks and chops.

ingredients

serves 4
250 g (9 oz) small French beans, left whole
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
4 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper
50 g (2 oz) mushrooms, sliced
250 g (9 oz) beansprouts

method

1. Heat the oil in a wok or large heavy-based pan. Fry the onion for 2 minutes, then add the beans and stir-fry for 1 minute.

2. Add the water, soy sauce, lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, tossing the beans in the liquid until it has evaporated

3. Add the mushrooms and stir constantly until they are tender. Add beansprouts and stir-fry for a further 2 minutes until the beansprouts are heated through and just tender, but still crisp. Transfer to a warmed serving dish and serve at once.
