A simple and nutricious way to enjoy bean sprouts, chinese chives and tofu.
500g bean sprouts
½ packet fried tofu puffs – cut into triangles using scissors
1 bunch Garlic/Chinese chives – cut into 4 cm lengths
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 small onion – sliced
1 fresh red chilli sliced or 2 to 3 dried chillies torn into pieces – optional (see my GLOSSARY post on CHILLIES)
Few splashes of light soy sauce
Few splashes of Thai fish sauce
Few drops of sesame oil
Salt to taste (optional)
In a wok, heat some oil and sauté the garlic and onion for 10 secs. Add in the tofu and chillies and cook for 1 min.
Add in the sprouts and chives and toss to cover with all the ingredients. Add some soy and fish sauce and cook for about 2 to 3 mins only. You want your bean sprouts to remain crunchy. Check seasoning.
Add a few drops of sesame oil, mix well, lift and serve hot with rice as an accompaniment to a meal.
