Nutritional values

There is a lot of protein in mung bean sprouts, which is interesting because of the high lysine content: the amino acid, which cannot be produced by the body itself, is involved in building supporting collagen and is needed for the production of antibodies, hormones and enzymes.

Quick side dish for a quick wok dish: Mie noodles without egg or rice noodles.
