French Bean Fried Rice

French bean or Yard Bean Fried Rice – it is simple and yet tasty. For a healthy diet by eating more vegetable, you may notice from the picture, the amount of vegetables used is real generous. Reduce the amount of vegetable used, if desired. Garnish with lightly toasted sesame seeds or finely shredded nori, if desired. Top with some crackers and tomatoes slices to make it more appealing. It is a Vegan dish! As indicated in the Vegan Key Chain.
