Bean Sprouts and Carrot Namul!

Bean Sprouts and Carrot Namul!

It's worth knowing how to parboil bean sprouts properly. If you change the seasonings of this recipe, you can make ohitashi dishes. Make namul with highly nutritious carrot and bean sprouts!

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Bean sprouts
2 packets
2 teaspoons
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Chicken stock powder
1 teaspoon
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons
Grated garlic
1/4 teaspoon (a small amount)
Grated ginger
1/4 teaspoon (a small amount)


1. Julienne the carrot into 5 cm strips. Boil water in a pot.
2. Add the carrot in the hot water, and after 30 seconds, add the bean sprouts. After 15 seconds, drain in a colander, and let them cook through with the residual heat.
3. Once the bean sprouts and carrot have cooled a little, squeeze out the excess water really well. (Squeeze hard in your hands.) Be careful since they may be hot on the inside.
4. Add all of the seasoning ingredients except sesame oil. Add the sesame oil right before you plan on serving it, and it's done. This time, I sprinkled mine with roasted white sesame seeds.
5. I forgot to add namul on top of bibimbap in this photo, but "Bibimbap in a Frying Pan" Recipe ID: 2409203 is also delicious!
6. If you replace the seasonings of this recipe with grated sesame seeds and dashi stock granules, you can make ohitashi dishes. "One More Easy Dish! Bean Sprout & Nori Stir-Fry! To Use Up Excess Nori" Recipe ID: 2605084.
