bento with x.o. beans
Teriyaki tofu, X.O. beans, baked sweet potato, grapes and nectarine and pretzels.
Snack box: strawberries, Wallaby Bites and air-popped potato chips.
X.O. beans is my favourite dish from my local Chinese restaurant, I can't get enough of it. It's spicy and garlicy and generally delish!
A friend who lives in Melbourne bought me a bottle of vegetarian X.O. sauce so I could make my own at home. To make the dish you stir fry the sauce with some garlic and then add the beans until lightly browned, it's very easy. This version tastes pretty good, but not as good as from the restaurant (it's a bit salty).
