This recipe is so simple that it barely even needs a recipe. I like soy bean sprouts (the kind with the larger heads) as opposed to mung bean sprouts precisely because the larger heads provide a delicious crunch.
Kong Namul (Korean Seasoned Soy Bean Sprouts)
1 large bag of soy bean sprouts. (I didn't weigh this, just filled up a grocery store bag.)
Wash soy bean sprouts and let drain in a colander.
Boil a pot of water. When the water boils, add the bean sprouts and let them quickly blanch. Don't turn away from the stove. This takes only a few minutes. You want the bean sprouts to just soften.
Drain into colander. Don't rinse or you'll get the sprouts even wetter. Just shake the colander to remove as much water as possible.
Then dump the sprouts into a bowl and add a few drizzles of sesame oil, a few dashes of sea salt (not soy sauce so the sprouts stay white), and sprinkles of sesame seeds. I didn't measure so just taste and adjust to your taste.
