Stir Fry French Beans With Shimeiji

I love veggies and I love all kinds of edible spora, so you can imagine when I stir fry two of my favourites together what would be the reaction from yours truly….imaginable ….happily waiting for dinner to be served! I stir fry french beans and shimeiji with dried shrimps….oohhh the aroma of the fried dried shrimps with garlic and bird’s eye chillies is enough to accelerate the salivary glands into action. This is so simple a dish and yet so deliciously satisfying for the gastro.
Both have crunchy texture and I love it! Chomp chomp chompy....and yum yum yummy...hahaha so happy that at times yours truly can behave like a child or in her second childhood

simple dish yet delicious Mmmm.....

the dried shrimps, garlic and chillies
gave the whole dish the oommph..oo-la-la

french beans and shimeiji are my favorites
so put them together makes me happy...real happy :))))

I will fry this again for sure....
