Green Beans and Butter Beans in Asian Sauce (BC)

A deceptively simple dish that really does pack lots of flavour, without even a hint of meat. If you can’t find butterbeans, use any other kind of canned beans. I serve this dish with cooked rice. It is worth making a larger batch when cooking rice and keeping leftovers in the fridge or freezer. To heat, place in a bowl with a loose lid on it (or a sandwich bag). Heat the rice and stir it with a fork. Be careful, the bowl will be very hot.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion
  • 100gr green beans
  • 2 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sambal
  • 1 tbs water
  • 110gr butterbeans from can, drained
  • 125gr cooked rice

Serves 1 as part of the Budget Challenge

Recipe:

Peel the onion, cut it in half and slice into rings.
Heat the oil in a frying pan. Sweat the onions.
Cut the tips from the beans and add them to the frying pan. Bake for about 3 minutes to brown them.

Combine the oyster sauce, fish sauce, sambal and water in a bowl. Stir well and pour it into the frying pan. Leave to simmer to thicken a bit, then add the butterbeans. Heat briefly and serve with rice.
