      It looks really delicious. I would have to modify some of the ingredients because I am vegetarian. But, we are starting to get into bean sprouts so will have to try this recipe. Thanks!

      Lohrainne, thank you for your comment, you might want to replace fish sauce with salt or use the soy sauce instead. Or you might just want to mix it with olive oil, lime juice, palm sugar and salt, then mix with chopped herb before serving. Bean sprouts goes well with soup and make a good stir-fried dish too, I believe you will make a great dish.

      Yum! That is a great idea. Using palm sugar was a very thoughtful suggestion. This sounds like a great recipe for a vegetarian. I have not tried olive oil and lime juice, but I am going to this weekend. Thanks for the idea!
