Stir-fry Rucola - Mung Bean Sprouts

Mung bean sprouts are the most popular and most recognized of all sprouts. You can find them mostly in asian dishes. They are very healthy and rich in vitamins, protein and minerals. In this recipe, you can also use Soy bean sprouts.

Rucola below as what they call it here in Europe, or wild rocket (Arugula) also offers many health benefits and if you wish to find more , you can read it here. They can also be costly if bought fresh from supermarkets... This season, I may want to try sowing some in containers.
