Deniz loves these bean sprouts, we’ve made them more than any other recipe on this blog.  I’ve never been a big fan of bean sprouts, and even I like them.  They’re simple to make, full of flavor, and very nutritious.  This recipe is taken from Wei-Chuan’s Chinese Cuisine cookbook, with the seasoning amplified for our tastes.


  • 2 lbs bean sprouts
  • ½ green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 t Sichuan peppercorn, ground


  • 2 t salt
  • 2 t sugar
  • 2 t MSG
  • 2 T rice vinegar


Prepare the ingredients per the instructions above.  Combine the Seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.

Heat 3 T of cooking oil in a wok over high heat.  Add the ground Sichuan peppercorn and stir-fry for 10 seconds.  Add the bean sprouts, sliced green pepper, and Seasoning, and continue to stir-fry until until the bean sprouts are thoroughly cooked.
