  • Bean sprouts are the young shoots of the mung bean. They have petite pale-yellow leaves attached to a silvery bright white shoot. Bean sprouts offer crunch and a subtle nutty flavor with high water content.

  • Bean sprouts are popularly used in Asian cuisine. Add to meat, vegetable, or tofu stir-fries. Serve atop noodle soups or rice preparations. Use as a filling when making spring rolls and sushi. Add fresh bean sprouts raw to salads or tuck into sandwiches and wraps to add texture and moisture. To prevent wilting, stir-fry sprouts no longer than thirty seconds to maintain crunch and texture

  • Don't buy sprouts too far in advance because they'll fade after a couple of days. If not using the sprouts that day, rinse them in a colander under cold water, transfer them to a zip-top plastic bag lined with paper towels, and refrigerate them in the vegetable bin.
