Chinese Stir-Fry Runner Beans With Sesame Seeds Recipe

I was recently given some homegrown runner beans by a friend and remembered a recipe my mum cooked last year when she came to visit us in Summer using mangetout beans, so I am sharing the recipe here for you to try. You can omit the prawns for mushrooms and swap the anchovies granules for vegetable stock granules if you want to make this dish a vegetarian dish.  I served the stir-fry runner beans with Sambal Belancan (spicy sambal), Portuguese Beef Semur and Tuna Cutlet for dinner.

These have my mouth watering, they sound like the most delicious side dish! I love runner beans but find it hard to get the family to eat them – they may just try them this way!

They are in season now and if you have an abundance of them, this is a good way to get your kids to eat them
