Kongnamool Moochim - Seasoned Bean Sprouts - (콩나물 무침)
Start off by washing your bean sprouts in cold water.
In a pot (with a lid) add about 1cm of water and a little bit of minced garlic.
Throw in your bean sprouts (I believe this is about half a bag) some sesame oil and salt. I also add gook ganjang, but my mom says that I don't NEED to...I just do so that I can use less salt. Then close the lid and let it boil for about 15 minutes or so, it will cook from the steam that rises up from the bottom.
After 15 minutes, open the lid and adjust the flavor with some salt.
Throw in some green onions and close the lid for about another 3 minutes. At this point you're ready to serve, but I always add a little spice to my kongnamool...
I threw in some red pepper powder, mixed it up and transfer it to a container. So simple, huh?
