All the recipes I’ve found for making stir fry use ingredients (like oyster sauce!) that are LOADED with chemicals!

Here is a {Clean} Stir Fry recipe.

Feel free to substitute the green beans for just about anything-peas, mushrooms, etc!

{Clean Eating} Green Bean Stir Fry

1 lb. fresh green beans
2 T coconut oil
2 T chopped garlic
1/2 large yellow onion, cut into slivers
1/4 tsp. salt
1 T water (plus a bit more if you check and the pan seems dry)
2 T Stir Fry sauce (see below)

Trim both ends of green beans. (I do this by taking a handful of beans, standing them up in my hand, loosely enough that they fall down to the cutting board and ends line up, trim that end, then turn over and line up the other side and trim.) Cut green beans into 2 inch lengths, wash, and spin dry or dry with paper towels.
Heat the wok or a heavy frying pan over high heat for 1-2 minutes, until it’s too hot to hold your hand over it.  Add the coconut oil and heat about 30 seconds more, then add the garlic and onion slivers and cook for 20-30 seconds, stirring the whole time. (It will burn fast if you don’t stir!!)

Add beans and salt and cook about 2 minutes, stirring several times. Then add water, cover wok, and let beans steam for 5 minutes. (Check to see if the pan seems dry and added about 1 tsp. more water.)

Uncover the pan and add stir fry sauce, then cook 2 minutes more, stirring so all the beans are uniformly covered with the sauce.  Beans should still be slightly crisp when they’re done.  Serve hot.

{Stir Fry Sauce}
2 Tbs. Soy Sauce
1/4 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. Sesame Seeds (optional)
Put all ingredients in a bowl, and whisk until well blended.
