Do you like bean sprouts?

They are highly nutritious and easy to cook. It can be served on its own as a dish or it can be added into stir-fried noodles, kueh teow or rice vermicelli.

According to the Answers.com, bean sprouts are rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins and phytochemicals, all necessary for a germinating plant, and rich in essential nutrients for humans. It is thus essential that bean sprouts are cooked quickly to prevent loss of its nutrients.

This is my recipe which will only take 2 minutes to cook.


Ingredients
  • 300 gms bean sprouts (remove root part)
  • 1 pot of water
  • 3 tsp of cooking oil (palm oil / peanut oil)
  • 3 shallots (sliced thinly)
Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • A sprinkle of sesame oil
Garnish
  • spring onions (cut into 2 cm lengths)
Method

Prepare and clean bean sprouts.

Heat cooking oil and fry shallots till golden brown. Remove from oil and drain. Reserve the oil (*).

Boil water in a large pot (enough to cover bean sprouts). Put bean sprouts into rapidly boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Remove and drain.

Place cooked bean sprouts onto plate. Add sauce over the bean sprouts, followed by cooked oil (*), fried shallots and spring onions. Serve with fried rice.
