- ½ tsp sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- black pepper to taste
- red pepper flakes (optional)
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add rinsed bean sprouts, and boil for about 2 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. (Skip this boiling step if using canned bean sprouts.)

- Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 or 2 hours for the flavors to meld.
- Serve cold as a side dish or atop lettuce leaves.
