You can freeze bean sprouts whole, but if you want to save them for an especially delicious stir-fry or sesame-cured salmon (both recipes in this post!), chop them into smaller chunks first.
Keep the pieces whole, slice them into smaller pieces, or toss them in a rice cooker with the sprouts or beans, water, and seasonings.
Don’t skip the salt.
For a simple, super-simple, but incredibly satisfying dish, you can’t go wrong with tossing some sprouts with some sauteed white mushrooms and thinly sliced onion.
A few sprouts are all you need.
What to Use Bean Sprouts for
