Stir-Fried Bean Sprout with Fried Beancurd



This is my all time favorite way of cooking my bean sprouts. As I don't buy salted fish, I substitute it with dried anchovies. I posted my recipe in 2006 and now I re post it again by adding dried bean curd. It added protein to this delicious dish, very suitable as a vegetarian dish as well and it combined protein with fiber.

Ingredients:

~ 1 big bowl of bean sprouts
~ 2-3 cloves garlics, chopped
~ 2-3 Scallion, cut into 2 inches length
~ 1/2 pack of fried bean curd, cut into thin slices like shown above
~1/4 cup dried anchovies, washed and drained

Seasoning:
Salt to taste, 1 tsp. chicken stock granules & 1/4 cup water.

Method:

Heat oil in a wok. When hot, add in dried anchovies, stir-fry until anchovies turned crispy and brown then add in garlic. Stir well and add in the bean sprouts. Give a few good stirs and add the fried bean curd, seasoning and water. Let it simmer a little while and then add scallions in the last few seconds. Stir well and dish out. Serve hot.

Note: Do not overcook the bean sprout. It should remain crunchy.

Love the recipe. We love beansprouts in our house (nutritious, healthy, and cheap) and this will be another way of doing them sprouts.

Thanks for sharing.
