We all like bean sprouts. My girls are happy to just eat them raw. I like something done to them. Previously, I’ve done this bean sprout and garlic stir-fry, which I love, which is also from Simple Chinese Cooking. I thought perhaps the girls would enjoy this more raw salad. I liked it, but they’d still rather just eat them raw!
Bean Sprout Salad
- 1 pound bean sprouts
- 2 Tbs soy sauce
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 cup sliced green onions/scallions
- 1/2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 Tbs peanut oil
- Bring a pot of salted water to boil and add the bean sprouts, cooking at a simmer just a minute or so. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again, squeezing to remove any excess water.
- In a small bowl mix the soy sauce, sugar, green onions, and sesame oil.
- Just before serving, heat the peanut oil in a pan, then pour into the dressing ingredients and stir. Pour this all over the cooked and drained bean sprouts and serve.
