Sookjoo Namul (숙주나물 무침)

Sookjoo namul is a very easy and fast side dish to make. The bean sprouts are cooked al dente so there is a refreshing crunch in every bite.

1 bag of bean sprouts (24 oz / 1.5 lbs)
3 tbsp – minced garlic
1 tsp – salt
1 tbsp – sesame oil
Pinch of black pepper
2 green onions
1 tbsp – roasted sesame seeds (ground)


  1. Bring a large pot to a boil
  2. Throw all the bean sprouts into the boiling water until al dente (about 1-2 minutes)
  3. Strain the bean sprouts so there is no more water dripping (must strain really well because over time the bean sprouts produce more liquid)
  4. Move the bean sprouts into a large mixing bowl then add all ingredients
  5. Gently toss and enjoy
