One of my favorite things about Korean food is that each meal comes with a variety of little different side dishes. It’s fun when you have different options to choose from and the best part is that, with the Korean, you can always order second helpings! This bean sprout side dish is one of the most common side dishes served. I usually pair it with an Asian soup or add the Korean sprouts side salad to my gimbap . It has a mild flavor and adds a crunchy texture. Of course, you can also eat the sprout salad on its own.

How is Korean Sprout Side Salad made?

This Korean side salad is easy to make. First cook the bean sprouts by boiling them in unsalted water until just translucent but still crisp. Drain off the water and carefully squeeze excess liquid from the bean sprouts. For the spice sauce, mix vegan fish sauce (non-vegans can of course use a conventional fish sauce), garlic, chopped spring onions, salt, sesame seeds and sesame oil in a bowl. Add the cooked bean sprouts and mix thoroughly to distribute the seasoning sauce. The Korean Sprout Salad can be served warm or at room temperature.
