Doujiang and youtiao?

this stuff is pretty simple to make and the premade youtiao at the chinese supermarkets arent bad

just get unsweeten soy milk at your local asian market, scallions, dried shrimp (i like the super thin ones, maybe shrimp shells?), dried shredded pork (comes in a plastic tubs), preserved pickles ( comes in like foiled pouches usually)

apple cider vinegar (any vinegar but i like acv), soy sauce, sesame oil, chili oil...

heat the soy milk, then pour it over the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients wait for the soy milk to curdle from the vinegar

toast the youtiao

if i had soy milk at home, it takes less than 5 minutes to make...

just keep the yaotao in the freezer and get fresh soy milk and scallions... all the other ingredients last forever

and its so gooooooood

What to do with LOTS of left over Bean Sprouts?

eating soy sprouts raw is suppose to be bad

google it

its the only sprout that needs to be cooked to remove phytic acid and other antinutrients

but then again... if youre just gonna do it once or twice... i guess it doesnt really matter

just dont go eating soy bean sprout salad everyday...

are tehy yellow soy sprouts or green? if it has that stringy tail you should remove it...

you can stir fry with ginger and scallions...
