Bean Sprout Recipes: Stir Fry Bean Sprouts

bean sprout recipes

You don’t find too many bean sprout recipes around, so I was really happy to be sent this one.

Bean sprouts are so low in calories, but surprisingly high in nutrients.

This light Asian flavored side dish is not just a great accompaniment for Chinese dishes. I would serve this with chicken breasts baked with soy sauce, or grilled beef.
The walnuts in this recipe are a nutritional bonus. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, also found in salmon. Our body cannot produce Omega-3 fatty acid and we tend to get far too little of it in our diets. Walnuts are also a very good source of mono unsaturated fats, the same fat found in healthy olive oil.

The only way I can think of to make this recipe even healthier is to cut down on the amount of oil you use to cook the bean sprouts and to use a good quality cooking oil. Better yet, have you tried coconut oil yet? It’s fabulous tasting with just a hint of coconut flavor AND tremendously healthy for us. Make sure it is virgin coconut oil, which is actually solid at room temperature.
