Oops, I forgot to add that I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Healthier that way. And I cooked the carrots and green beans a little longer, adding a bit of water and covering it for a bit because I like my carrots and green beans to be a little more cooked than this called for. But that is a personal thing.

I couldn't find oyster sauce so used black bean and garlic sauce instead and it was really good. I also substituted regular onion for the green onion and I am allergic to peas so I used green beans instead, adding them with the carrots and also added zucchini chunks with the mushrooms. This was really a good recipe and I will definitely make it again.
