  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons vegetable oil divided use
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup white onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup green onions cut into 1 inch pieces, then thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil over medium high heat in a large pan. Add the carrots and white onions to the pan.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are softened.
  • Add the green onions and garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Remove the vegetables from the pan, and cover to keep warm.

  • Add the bean sprouts to the pan, and toss to combine.

  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and additional green onions if desired, then serve.
