NO SALT - the soy gives the salt .

Seed and chop peppers into squares .
String beans and cut into two .
Par boil beans for all of 30 seconds in water into which 1 teaspoon of sugar has been added 
to keep them green and fresh looking .
Plunge beans into iced water to prevent further cooking .

Heat oil in a wok / pan , chuck in the garlic and black pepper along with the soy and balsamic vinegar .Stir a few seconds , add the vegetables .Mix well , cook covered for a minute or two .Don't overcook as you want everything crunchy .

Eat at room temperature as a side dish or chilled as a salad .
You can add more soy / balsamic even after its cooked .
Tastes even better the next day when all flavours have seeped through and pickled the vegetables !

If you have Feta Cheese add cubes of Feta if eating this dish as a chilled salad .
