Stir-fried eggplant and green beans, as the name suggest, is a stir fry of the two vegetables on a savory, spicy sauce made with soy sauce and chilis. It is a common Chinese homestyle dish, like blanched Asian greens. It’s a very simple dish, hence it can be prepared on a daily basis to accompany other Chinese dishes. All you need is to quickly stir fry two of its main ingredients then season accordingly.
