  • 2C Mung Bean Sprouts
  • 1/2C Chinese Chives
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 inch Fresh Ginger knob, julienne
  • 1 Birds Eye Chili, diced and seeds removed
  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt to taste
  • Ground White Pepper to taste
  • Finely Chopped Green Onions, for garnish
  • Fresh Cilantro, rough chop for garnish

Optional Ingredients


  1. Thoroughly wash mung bean sprouts and chives. Drain excess water.
  2. Add vegetable oil to a wok or non-stick pan and heat to medium-high heat.
  3. Once the oil is hot, add minced ginger and cloves of garlic, and sauté until fragrant. If the wet aromatics are burning too quickly, reduce to medium heat.
  4. You may opt to add dried shrimp to the wok to add umami!
  5. Add Birds Eye chili or dried chili flakes.
  6. Add bean sprouts followed by Shaoxing wine, sugar, salt and pepper. Add baby clams, sliced lean pork or Chinese bacon if desired. Sliced firm or smoked tofu is equally delicious. Quickly stir fry a few rounds.
  7. Add chives and stir fry quickly, about five times.
  8. Garnish with fresh cilantro or finely chopped green onions.
  9. Serve and enjoy this hot salad!




  1. Hot steamed white jasmine rice is recommended!
  2. Do not overcook bean sprouts and chives. They taste best slightly uncooked. These veggies and herbs taste the best crispy! The residual heat will continue to cook the veggies after it has been plated.
