Mung Bean Sprouts Omelette

Have you ever tried sprouting  your own mung beans?  I did and am pleased that I got a bucket full when I harvested them this morning.  There are many methods to sprout the mung beans and I used the method shared by Maangchi Korean Cooking on youtube.  The only thing to mention was the mung beans that I sprouted were tall and not meaty like the one sold in the market. Anyway, I am still pleased since it is my first time sprouting the mung beans.   I took cleaned some to cook omelette and the rest I kept in air tight container in the fridge. It can keep well if it is dry to touch.

Back to the omelette, the sprouts really taste good, has a crunchy texture even after adding them to the omelette.  I am happy about home sprouting and home cooked meals.  A simple dish like this is good enough for the two of us.  You can try out this mung bean sprouts omelette with the store bought mung bean sprouts ( taugeh as it is locally known )  Easy and can whip this omelette in less than 10 mins :)

Mung Bean Sprouts Omelette

a handful of  mung bean sprouts (taugeh ) remove tails ,wash and drain dry
1 stalk of spring onion - sliced
1/2 carrot - coarsely grated
2 red chilli - sliced

2 eggs - whisk together with the seasoning below
1 tsp of Maggi Seasoning
a dash of ground white pepper
a pinch of salt

1 tsp of grapeseed oil


Grease a non-stick pan with a tsp of grapeseed oil and heat pan over medium low heat. Once pan is hot, add in the beaten eggs with the seasonings and sprinkle the grated carrots and spring onions and chilli. Once the base is slightly set, and the top is still wet ,add in the mung bean sprouts, spreading evenly all over the surface. Once the base is totally set and has turned golden brown, flip the omelette over  and cooked for a few seconds just enough time for the mung beans sprouts to be cooked and not overly cooked.  Flip over and serve with the mung bean sprouts side up .  This omelette taste good with homemade sambal belacan.

Enjoy !
