What to do with LOTS of left over Bean Sprouts?
I needed 1 cup of bean sprouts for veggie mu shu pancakes, I must have about 8 cups left. What to do with them? Ideas?
Stir fry? Maybe in red curry like the Thai green bean dish? There's a recipe online for a sort of hummus made with bean sprouts too. Or you could just munch 'em!
simple Asian side salad. Place bean sprouts in microwavable container, nuke it for 3-4 min. Dump it in ice cold water to prevent from cooking and drain well.
Mix dried cold sprouts with 2 T vinegar, 1/2 t sugar, 1 t salt, 1 T sesame oil and some chopped green onions. If you like it spicy you can add hot chili oil.
I usually add a bit of bay shrimp in the side salad. It's great with grill fish or meats.
Throw a couple handfuls into your rice pot to cook at the same time as the rice. Easy and very nutritious.
I like making a beansprout salad - for me, it's a lovely fresh, light side dish to an Asian dinner. And super easy and quick.
Layer beansprouts, shredded carrot, cilantro, crushed peanuts, and top with a generous splash of fish sauce.
