Step 1: Step One to Growing Sprouts
Sift through and rinse the beans before using them! Place a damp paper towel in the bottom of a dish and play the beans in a SINGLE layer. Sprouts like damp dark places, so place something over the bowl (I used chop sticks and criss-crossed them) and a towel over the bowl to keep the sprouts in the dark- or place them in a cabinet.
Step 2: Daily Check

Step 4: My Egg Foo Young Recipe
2 Cups Mung Bean Sprouts
3 small carrots, shredded
1 Cup edamame
1 can mushrooms, drained
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon dry ginger
4 Tablespoons soy sauce and a little extra for eating if desired
vegetable oil for cooking
First, cook the sprouts in boiling water for 1 1/2-2 minutes, so they are tender but firm. Drain this well.
Scramble the eggs in a bowl. Put all other ingredients into a seperate bowl and mix.
Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan and saute the vegetables. Pour eggs over the vegetables and stir like scrambled eggs. Cook until the egg is cooked and everything is heated through.
Serve immedietly with jasmine rice.
Note: You can cook this in individual patty form like in the restraunts or you can cook it in one big pan 'family style.'
Yield: About four servings
