Do you like bean sprouts?

They are highly nutritious and easy to cook. It can be served on its own as a dish or it can be added into stir-fried noodles, kueh teow or rice vermicelli.

According to the, bean sprouts are rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins and phytochemicals, all necessary for a germinating plant, and rich in essential nutrients for humans. It is thus essential that bean sprouts are cooked quickly to prevent loss of its nutrients.

This is my recipe for Bean Sprouts in Two Minutes.
