If you cook a lot of Asian dishes and wonder what else you can quickly throw together that would go well with everything — try quickly stir-frying some raw pea sprouts.
These sprouts are widely available at local Super H-Mart stores, Assi Markets and at the Buford Highway Farmers Market (packaged in containers in the produce section).
I also have been tossing a small clump of these in bowls of soups, or drizzling with a little low sodium soy sauce and eating as-is.
Here is a quick recipe for stir-frying:
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp of peanut oil, or vegetable oil
2 large handfuls of pea sprouts
1 Tbsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp of Asian chile oil/sauce (optional)
Finish with ground black pepper
1. Heat a wok (or wide frying pan) on high heat
2. Add a tsp of peanut oil, or any other kind of vegetable oil
3. Add the minced garlic
4. After the garlic turns a light golden color in the oil, add the pea sprouts
5. Using tongs or a wooden spoon, quickly stir the sprouts around in
