Korean Mung Bean Sprouts Salad

Simply delicious Korean style seasoned mung bean sprouts salad!

Korean Style Seasoned Mung Bean Sprouts Salad (Sukju Namul Muchim) | MyKoreanKitchen.com

Today’s recipe is another simple side dish (banchan) called Sukju Namul Muchim (숙주나물 무침, Korean style seasoned mung bean sprouts salad).

It’s made in almost the same way with almost identical ingredients (except for the quantity) to the spinach side dish I posted recently. (This is how typical Korean sautéed side dishes are made!)

I normally make this salad to add to bibimbap. While it has a mild nutty aroma and savory flavor, it doesn’t have a dominant taste so it blends very well in bibimbap. It also has a nice crunchy texture! Of course, it stands well on its own as a side dish to any Korean meal as well.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my bean sprouts salad recipe!
