It's super easy.  Here's what to do:

  • Cut ends off beans and halve, cut hot peppers into very small pieces, wash all other vegetables and herbs and cut everything into bite sized pieces.

  • Heat 2Tbsp Olive Oil in a large pan or wok
  • Crush garlic and place it into pan with hot peppers, mushrooms and eggplant. Stir until eggplant gets soft and brown
  • Add string beans, tofu and corn, stir til heated (beans should stay crisp)
  • Add 1-2 Tbsp of each Asian Sauce and heaps of basil and cilantro, stir til heated (1 min or so)
  • Transfer all into a large bowl so the vegetables stop cooking
  • Bring bowl to table
