sprout omeletteIngredients:
3/4 cup of Chinese bean sprouts (mung beans) or alfalfa sprouts
1 tsp. diced bell pepper
1 tsp. diced green onion
2/3 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup diced water chestnuts
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 to 2 tsp. vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste

In an omelet pan, saute vegetables and bean sprouts in oil for 3 – 5 minutes. Remove vegetables and place on a warm plate. Whip together the eggs, milk and seasoning. Pour egg mixture into the omelet pan and cook on both sides. Place vegetables in center and fold omelet over.

If using Alfalfa sprouts, saute the vegetables 1 to 3 minutes before adding the alfalfa sprouts so that they cook for only 2 minutes. Cooking alfalfa sprouts changes their taste in an interesting way.
