Stir-fried vegetables in black bean sauce is a quick and easy dish that you can prepare in minutes. The black bean sauce and kecap manis compliment the different tastes of the vegetables. Make sure not to overcook them because we want them to remain crunchy. If you have the time, you can cook the vegetables in batches.
