Stir-Fried Green Beans

We all know how important it is to eat several servings of veggies each day, right? After all, they’re loaded with essential vitamins that our bodies need to be healthy! Healthy vegetable recipes certainly don’t have to be boring and flavorless, though. Our recipe for Stir-Fried Green Beans proves that! It has it all, combining incredible flavors with nutrient-rich ingredients.

You Want Me to Add Radishes to Stir-Fried Green Beans?

Try this healthy and flavorful side dish option!

Not a fan of radishes? You’re certainly not alone, but we strongly encourage you to give them another chance in this Stir-Fried Green Beans with Radishes recipe. Personally, I love radishes in any form. I’ve even been known to slice them up and eat them as a chip substitute since they’re so crunchy and flavorful.

Raw radishes tend to have a peppery bite that some people find off-putting. If that sounds like you, try cooking them instead. Cooked radishes take on a milder, nuttier flavor, and they also lose their spiciness.

No Cooking Oil Required!

This recipe allows you to cut down on fat and calories because it omits the cooking oil!

Because we use a non-stick pan to prepare this recipe, no added oil is needed for cooking. However, we do drizzle the finished dish with toasted sesame oil for several reasons.

First, it adds an interesting dimension and a ton of flavor to the finished dish. Second, it allows you to limit the amount of fat in the recipe because a little goes a long way, so less is needed. Finally, toasted sesame oil complements the nutty flavor of the cooked radishes.

It’s worth noting that you should only use toasted sesame oil for finishing a dish, for salad dressings, or uncooked sauces. Toasted sesame oil has a lower smoke point (the point at which oil burns) than regular sesame oil or a blend, so you should never use it for cooking.

The Perfect Pairing

Pair this delicious veggie side dish with any cut of lean meat or chicken!
