I always order stir fried bean sprouts from the Chinese takeaway. This is much better, and utterly addictive

This is a great side if you're having Korean. We had it with jap chae noodles. It is very quick to make and as a bonus is even healthy! The beansprouts I got were in a bag of 300g and so I just stuck the whole lot in and it was fine.
