This beansprout soup can be eaten hot or cold (by keeping it in the fridge). But i prefer to eat it warm though.
Good to drink after hangover or rounds of drinks. When hubs have drinking sessions with his Korean friends or dinner with them (cfm have alcohol esp soju), i will prep this soup for him. They drink it when they have hangover and it is supposed to help to clear the hangover.
Superrr easy to cook! 10mins done.
Korean style Beans prouts Soup
-chopped green chilli and red chilli
-soy sprouts (not the normal bean sprouts! Must be those big headed ones and stated Soy Sprouts on the package. You must take note when you buy .You can buy from ntuc Sakura brand or seoul butchery or k&j butchery where they sell some Korean fresh produce)
Ingredients for soup base:
