Oriental Bean Sprouts

Kathy W


This dish is crunchy, salty, tangy and sweet. Excellent as a side dish for any meal or as an appetizer.

I saw something similar in a cookbook and wasn't sure how it would taste. Gave it a tweak or two. Found myself going back pinching a bite every time I walked by.
