Stir-fried French Beans with Egg

French beans with egg (四季豆炒蛋) is a comfort food dish which I grew up eating. It is an alternative version of my mum’s long beans omelette recipe, with the beans cut to longer slices. It is really simple to cook with only 3 main ingredients (french beans, egg and garlic), and especially enjoyable with a bowl of porridge.

It is simple home-cooked dishes like this which I never get tired of eating all these years. I always try to buy french beans when I am busy, because I know I can whip up this healthy dish quickly (in about 15 minutes) and effortlessly. This is just perfect for eating light or/and busy nights.
