I love these vegetables! Have you tried them? I believe these are called hairy gourd in English according to my research so do correct me if I'm wrong or if you know of another name for these yummy gourds. This is such an easy, economical and simply satisfying dish. If you are not used to these vegetables, they are pretty mild tasting and the texture is like a softer version of a cucumber in my opinion. These are available at most Asian supermarkets so do pick one up the next time you're there!
This is a great recipe to use up leftover roasted pork if you have any. Crunchy green beans stir-fried simply with garlic, some soy and fragrant sliced roasted pork - a winner in my books. You can use snake beans or french beans in this recipe as well. A stir-fry is just so easy and simply satisfying served with hot steamed rice. We have been cooking brown rice instead of white rice in the interests of healthier eating - so I feel like I can indulge in stir-fries (relatively) sinlessly!
There's nothing easier (and also delicious) than some cooling pasta salad! So easy to whip up, great as a side dish but this has been known to be the main course for someone I know. Hmm...
