Quick Vegetable Saute

quick vegetable saute

After spending three weeks away from home and eating in restaurants, it's nice to make light meals at home. What I was craving the most during my trip to Asia was Shepherd's Pie. It's comfort food to me. Some meals we had were delicious and some were not that great. One of the best meals I had was in a tiny Indian restaurant in Kuala Belait in Brunei. I took a chance to enter when I saw the food on people's plates. It looked and smelled so good. I was delighted by what I ate. 

In Asia it is not recommended to eat vegetables that are not cooked. I ended up ordering a lot of sautéed dishes during my trip, but I still prefer to make my own sauté. I can choose the vegetables that I want to eat and the sauce. In this Quick Vegetable Sauté I simply opened the fridge and took all all of the veggies that we had left from Christmas. It was quick to make and instead of meat I simply added black beans and the Blue Dragon Wasabi Plum sauce. I served the sauté over basmati rice. It was delicious!


2 cups vegetables, sliced
1 cup black beans
1 tbsp olive oil
140 ml Blue Dragon Wasabi Plum Stir Fry Sauce

1- In a medium pan warm the oil. Add the vegetables and sauté for five minutes. 
2- Add the black beans and the Blue Drgon Wasabi Plum Stir Fry Sauce. Cook for 1 more minute.
3- Serve with rice or noodles.

Makes 2 servings


  1. Delicious! A wonderful post-festivity dish.



  2. I've never tried Blue Dragon sauces -- do you prefer them?

  3. Never thought to saute veggies with beans. You make it look so delicious, and that's coming from a person who doesn't like beans!

  4. I've never done a saute with beans. It's a great way to add protein to a vegetable dish. This looks like a recipe I'll try. Thanks.
