Make a great Korean side dish

Beansprouts are used throughout Korean cooking and are also popular in most Asian countries. They go well in dishes like bibimbap, and have a high nutritious content.

You can make this side dish either plain or spicy both are nice and the importance is to maintain the crunchy texture.

I have used the following ingredients:
500g of beansprouts
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sesame salt
1 clove of crushed garlic
1 tablespoon of red pepper powder.

To begin boil some water in a pan, and add the beansprouts. Boil these for about 8 minutes, then put them in a colander and rinse well with cold water (this should maintain the crunch). Add the sesame oil and salt, followed by the garlic. The plain ones are ready and can be served with a sprinkle of sesame seeds if you like.

For the spicy equivalent add some red pepper powder, as much as you see fit. Mix together and again serve with sesame seeds. You can store this side in the fridge until required and serve small amounts with a main dish, its best served cold.
