8 cups bean sprouts –may be either soybean or mung bean sprouts or a combination
3 tablespoons Japanese soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons roasted and lightly crushed sesame seeds
Bring 12 cups of water to a boil. If using soybean sprouts, put them in and boil for 12 minutes. If using mung bean sprouts, boil them for 2 minutes. (If using a combination, boil soybean sprouts for 10 minutes, add mung bean sprouts, and cook for 2 more.)
Drain thoroughly and squeeze out as much water as possible.
Put the sprouts into a bowl and add all the other ingredients and mix well.
