Amazingly yummy beansprouts!!

Beansprouts...are one of the most readily available vegetables in the market...u get a fairly big bag for around 70 cents...and i was looking for interesting ways to cook them with....as a stirfry, common additions would be deep fried beancurd (twa kua) or salted fish...since i had neither on hand...i decided on a very simple Korean recipe from Recipezaar...

and the result is fantastic!! So few ingredients; so much taste!!!
