Bamboo Shoot, Mushroom, and Long Bean Stir-Fry

Bamboo Shoot, Mushroom, and Long Bean Stir-Fry

The clean, simple flavors of this stir-fry get a hint of spice from dried chiles. Using whole chiles lets you control the heat more easily than with chopped chiles or chile sauce. Check Asian markets for fresh bamboo shoots that are boiled and vacuum-sealed. The pale yellow cones taste so much better than canned. You can substitute green beans for the long beans, though their texture isn't quite as firm.
