Stir-Fry Carrots & French Beans 清炒胡萝卜

I have been using more and more onions in my everyday cooking. From 2-3 medium-size onions for every week's grocery shopping, to 4-6 onions. With an average of half or more onion used in any single dish, the onions in my pantry can be used up really fast!

Onions contain flavonoids such as quercetin and anthocyanins, with anti-inflammatory benefits. Not only onions offer a range of health benefits, they easily flavor a simple stir-fry of carrots and green (French) beans so well!


This easy Stir-Fry Carrots & French Beans 清炒胡萝卜 is inspired by Little Corner of Mine's Easy Stir-Fried Carrots. I never thought of using carrots as the main ingredient in a side dish. This is indeed budget-friendly, nutritious and tasty!


To scale up to a one-dish, add more greens such as kale and add more bulk by adding green beans. Then add noodles and out comes a one-dish stir-fry noodles!
