2.) Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan.  Add the garlic and cook on medium until lightly golden.  Watch carefully so you do not burn garlic.
3.) Add the red chili peppers, cashew nuts and toasted coconut.  Mix together stevia, nama shoyu and apple cider vinegar together.  Cook over medium heat for 1 minutes.
4.) Push stir-fry to one side of pan and add flax on opposite end.  Cook and stir the flax egg for about a minute and then incorporate into stir-fry mixture.
5.) Add the green beans, bok choy and brown rice to stir-fry.  Cook and stir on medium for another minute.  Bok Choy will be wilted, but green beans will still be a bit crunchy.
