Mince garlic & thinly slice white parts of scallions & red onions. In wok (or large skillet) preheat 1 tbsp oil on high heat until faint wisps of smoke start to rise. Add garlic & sliced white parts of scallions. Stirring until fragrant (about 10 seconds). Add thinly sliced red onions & Gardein beefless tips. Stir until browned on all sides.

Thibnly slice remaining green sections of scallions, add to wok with large pinch of red pepper flakes. Serve with steamed rice & enjoy!
