Recipe: Lightly Stir-fried Beansprouts in Oyster Sauce

This dish has a delicate flavour and makes a good accompaniment to stronger flavoured dishes. To wash drop the beansprouts into a basin of cold water and lift out into a colander, handfuls of sprouts. This is an easy was to separate the whole sprouts from the broken tails and bean casings in the bag. Never soak beansprouts in water.
