Chinese Stir-Frying Mung Bean Sprouts

(Last Updated On: August 30, 2021)

Stir-frying mung bean sprouts is a simple vegetarian dish I truly love. It is a common dish to eat with spring pancakes on Chinese dinner table. You can use it to balance the menu of egetables and meat.

Mung bean sprouts are rich in vitamins and amino acids, and their nutritional value is much greater than its mother’s mung bean. We can also make bean sprouts at home, which is healthier than buying.

  • The simplest ingredients are mung bean sprouts, green shallots and salt.

Cooking notes:

Don’t spent longer time for stir-frying to make mung bean sprouts crispy.
