Mung Bean Sprouts Salad

mung bean sprouts salad

Last weekend we had birthday party of my friend, some of the menus are Indonesian food, happy! At the end there are a lot of rest of the food and we had to take away. There were also food that haven’t cooked yet, like mung bean sprouts. So I brought the sprouts at home and made fresh mung bean sprouts salad.

The salad that I made was raw, that means I didn’t boil the sprouts. If you like, you can boil it in salted water for 5 minutes, strain and run in cold water for a while and drain well. For the seasoning sauce I used sliced spring onion, minced garlic, roasted sesame seeds, sesame oil and sea salt. Combine well the mung bean sprouts with the sauce mixture. Enjoy it!
