|Dry sauteed string bean|
The dish is salty and garlicky and with the crunch of the beans, it really is a perfect dish in my opinion.
And the dish started out with these beauties.
|Chinese long beans.|
Then I chopped up some garlic and green onions. I also added a scoop of chili paste to the stir fry 'plate'.
What happened next? Well, I went to make the sauce and ended up being out of quite a few ingredients. I went ahead and made substitutions, which usually works out wonderfully for me, but not today.
A dish that should have been salty and garlicky and all around delicious turned out a bit too sweet and just strange tasting.
But, no fear, I have half of the bunch of green beans left so I will have another go at the recipe tomorrow.
Even if the recipe didn't turn out tasting quite right - it did look pretty.
I consoled myself by eating this for lunch.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday!
