Four Angled Beans & Tempe Stir Fry

Stir fry again. I told you (Tofu & Green Bean Stir Fry)? We need our fiber daily. What's in store today as our stir fry? Four Angle Beans & Tempe Stir Fry (Kacang Buncis Tempe). Tempe, like tofu is an affordable source of protein and of course four angled beans, aka winged beans, is another favourite from our Malaysian soil. Really affordable. A bunch will cost you only maybe like a dollar and fifty. In fact, you can grow four angled beans rather easily if you want to (Kangkung Belacan). Four Angled Beans & Tempe Stir Fry is the router for a vegetarian stir fry side dish. Of course, also simplicity. 

1 packet (abt 120g) tempe - cut into cubes
140g (about 10 pieces)  four angled beans - remove strings on both sides and cut diagonally
4 garlic - chopped
1 red chilli - remove seeds and slice thinly
3 tbsp oil
Salt to taste.

In heated oil, fry tempe till nice and brown in color.
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, saute garlic.
Add beans and season with salt. 
Quickly stir  for a couple of seconds.
Add  tempe and sliced chilli.
One good stir and remove from heat.
