I have been on a ‘sprout kick’ recently and I guess it all started with mung bean sprouts. Not sure what they are? Well, if you have ever had pho (Vietnamese noodle soup), then you would recognize the tadpole-liked sprouts, which were once mung beans. You can also enjoy them in any stir-fry dishes, which you also see in other Asian cuisines as well. You can, of course, sprout your own, but they are always available at Asian supermarkets, so I just buy them as by the pound (one pound is enough to last a few meals for myself).
So tonight, I did a stir-fry by combining bean sprouts, Chinese greens (choi sum), and lily bulbs. Add a bowl of rice and it becomes a nourishing dinner.
