TODD COLEMAN

Bean sprouts, often used raw as garnish, take center stage in this quick, flavor-packed stir-fry. The addition of just a few ingredients over high heat brings out their sweet succulence. This recipe first appeared in our October 2011 issue along with Jayanthi Daniel's article Hungry City.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. peanut oil
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. mung bean sprouts
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 Chinese chives or scallions, thinly sliced

Add sprouts, soy sauce, and pepper, and cook, stirring, until sprouts just begin to wilt, about 1 minute. Add chives, and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 15 seconds. Serve immediately.
