Ingredients

  • 7.5 ounces (213 grams) soy bean sprouts
  • 2.6 ounces (75 grams, about 8 scapes) garlic scapes, cut into 1.5-inch lengths
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil.
  2. Add the garlic scapes and give them a 30 second head start before adding the bean sprouts.
  3. Add the bean sprouts and let the pot come back to a boil (another minute or so). Drain and rinse the vegetables with cold water.
  4. Squeeze the bean sprouts and garlic scapes between your hands to get as much water out of them as you can.
  5. Put the squeezed bean sprouts and scapes in a bowl and toss with the sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy sauce, and salt.
