Black Bean Stir Fry

May 8, 2012

Sean and I were looking to make a quick Friday night meal that contained a lot of vegetables. It had to be fast, easy, and delicious! So we made this black bean stir fry. 🙂

Black Bean Stir Fry


  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 an onion, chopped roughly
  • 1 cup of snow peas, ends trimmed
  • 1 green pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 head of broccoli, roughly chopped
  • 1 bag of mung bean sprouts
  • black bean sauce garlic sauce (we purchased the Lee Kum Kee Black Bean Garlic Sauce)
  1. Saute the onion on medium heat in oil of your choice until heated through. We keep ours crunchy because we prefer it that way.
  2. Add the broccoli and black beans. Fry for 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the green pepper, snow peas, and black bean garlic sauce. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes, until softened.
  4. Add the mung bean sprouts, take off the heat and stir together.

Some people don’t like to rinse and drain their canned beans, but we always do. I find the water mixture a tad frightening, but also if you rinse the beans you can eliminate a lot of gas problems! Just be careful with the bean sprouts because they wither really fast, so we add them at the end and then mix so there are fewer casualties haha. This is super simple, but really tasty especially when you’re looking for a vegetable fix. We didn’t serve it with rice because all the vegetables contain a lot of fibre, which is really filling, but you could serve this along with some brown rice if you wanted.
