  1. Delicious! I love it very spicy :-)

  2. I am also not a fan of beansprouts (since have had those raw super-grassy sprouts when I was a kid and could nvr forget that unwelcomed taste and feel on my palate..till now). I still cook them once in a while. Do you like soybean sprouts? I prefer soybean sprouts to mung bean sprouts ,

    My lazy method to make spicy bean sprouts is to mix them with store-bought kimchi, then the whole dish is spiced up (and also the bean sprouts can help “distribute” the saltiness in kimchi).
