PREPARATION
1.
Remove the brown part and stringy root part from the sprouts. This is recommended when you eat raw bean sprouts or when they are seasoned with light flavor sauce. You can taste the clean bean sprouts.
2.
Rinse the bean sprouts under cold water and drain well.
3.
Add 4 cups (1L) or enough water to cover the bean sprouts in a pot and bring to boil.
4.
Once boiling, add bean sprouts to cook for 1.5 minutes.
5.
Drain into a colander and set aside for 5 minutes as you don't want to dilute the sauce with remaining water.
6.
Cut the green onion/scallion into small pieces. Grind the sesame seeds in a mortar and pestle. Grate the garlic, or use a garlic press to crush the garlic.
7.
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the seasonings and mix well. *(It might look little but it's more than enough)*.
8.
Add the bean spout and green onion/scallion in the bowl.
9.
Toss all together and serve. You can also let cool in refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
