The ingredients in the recipe

  • Grapeseed Oil: this oil is a bit expensive, but you can substitute for extra virgin olive oil, avocado, or coconut
  • Fresh Garlic: use fresh garlic if you can. Garlic powder does not give the same flavor.
  • Green Beans: frozen greens and beans are much better to use in this recipe for timing. If you have time, you can use fresh green beans. It will be better to blanch them first.
  • Shiitake Mushroom: a superfood, great in egg dishes, low in calories, and good fiber food.
  • Fresh Parsley: it is important to use fresh parsley because you want the dish to be as fresh as possible.
  • Red Bell Pepper: color and flavor are important for this dish, and red bell pepper is a perfect addition.
  • Red Onion: best to use instead of white onion. It contains more flavor.
  • Low Sodium Soy Sauce: a great seasoning for sauteed string beans and other vegetables.
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper adds the perfect seasoning kick.
