For best results, wash the bean sprouts ahead of time, so that they have a chance to drain thoroughly.

great base for anything in the fridge, Member emilyremixed

Delicious, nicely balanced recipe that can handle a million variations. I just threw in some shiitake mushrooms, snow peas, tofu and celery. Awesome.
