The husband and I love bean sprouts because of its light and crunchy texture. Plus it is probably the cheapest vegetable you can get from the wet market (I bought mine for only $0.30!) so it’s really a very affordable dish. I try to pair bean sprouts with different ingredients for variety. If you like salted fish, check out my Stir Fried Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish Recipe too.

I love my floral vegetable cutter from Daiso which I normally use to cut carrot slices so they look really pretty on any dish. I serve this dish with rice porridge which makes it a healthy and filling meal. If you need ideas for vegetable dishes, this is a good one to try. Enjoy!
