STIR-FRIED BEAN SPROUTS


Bean sprouts are most common in East-Asian Cuisine. I have stir-fried them lightly with some veggies and used some basic sauces and honey for flavouring them. This is a very healthy snack specially when you are dieting.

Ingredients:
Bean sprouts ..... 500 gms
Carrot ................. 1 (cut into thin strips)
Capsicum .............. 1 (cut into thin strips)
Spring onion ......... 2 sprigs
Ginger/garlic paste.. 1 tbsp.
Oil ............................... 1 tbsp.
Soya sauce ................. 1 tbsp.
Chilli sauce ................. 1 tsp.
Honey .......................... 1 tsp.
Salt to taste

Method:
In a wok, heat the oil and saute the ginger/garlic paste.
Stir fry the carrot and capsicum for a minute and add the spring onion.
Stir in the sauces, honey and salt.
Now add the sprouts and stir fry for two or three minutes.
Prepare this just before eating because the sprouts should be crunchy.
This is a very healthy snack.
Bean sprouts are a rich source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and Vitamin C. Sprouts also provide higher amounts of most minerals.
