Green beans stir-fried with oyster mushrooms and garlic

"Oyster mushrooms are so versatile. They are named for their caps, which can fan out to 25 cm and are the shape of an oyster. These mushrooms have a sweet anise aroma and are wonderfully textured. If you want to keep this dish vegetarian, simply use soy or tamari sauce instead of oyster sauce." ~ Luke Nguyen

This recipe is from Luke Nguyen's book, The Food of Vietnam, published by Hardie Grant Books and available at Cooked.
