Recipe: Mix of chinese vegetables and beans

In one of my Yahoo groups we share a recipe once a month. I've been a bit lazy about sharing mine lately but this month I tried a new recipe and decided to share it. I've been trying to eat more vegetables and less meat so I've been looking for new recipes. I've also been watching a lot of Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver shows where they use a lot of greens and so last week I decided to try my hand at inventing something... well, not really inventing. After all everyone can sautee vegetables and the ones you can use are endless and a matter of taste really. These were my choice:

Soy sprouts
Pekking cabbage
Pod peas
White beans

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan, add some garlic cloves, sauté for a few minutes until they become translucent. Add the soy sprouts, the pekking cabbage and the pod peas and in a low fire let it cook for a while. Add some apple cider vinegar and soy sauce at will. Youcan only sautée them for a few minutes but I prefer to leave them till they wilt. Then add the already cooked beans and some ham cut in small cubes and let them gain the taste.

Quite simple isn't it? And tasty too! Sadly the photo doesn't really do it justice...


  1. I am not good at inventing. I'm not that great at following other recipes as well, but I have recently been inspired to try new recipes. Over the last couple of months, I have tried a couple of Jamie's recipes and an Aussie chef as well. So far, so good.

  2. hey you could post about the ones you liked. So I could try them too. ;-)

  3. I posted one last Saturday!

    The recipes I tried were Beef and Ale Stew and Parmesan Chicken

  4. Ok, now I checked them and I am really hungry... Thanks, I'll save the links to try them ;-)


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
