Here is a ridiculously easy stir-fried dish to fix. If you are a vegetarian or in raw food diet, you must be familiar with bean sprouts. This delicate and perishable vegetable is abundantly available in the market throughout Asia. Asian love them in soups, salads or stir-fry dishes.

Stir-fried bean sprouts is simple, quick, easy and tasty dish. I think stir-fry is the best method for fixing bean sprouts: quick and intense cooking will bring out the natural sweetness of the sprouts but at the same time, you still can taste their wonderful crunchy texture.

Sweet, crunchy, salty and garlicky but yet low in sodium and high in fiber. This dish will be a favorite at your dinner table. A perfect vegetarian dish for everyone, even for non-vegetarian.

Serves 4


6 cups bean sprouts

1 tbsp Chinese rice wine

1/2 tsp salt

2 spring onions, thinly sliced

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tbsp bean sauce

2 tbsp cooking oil

1 tsp soy sauce
