Expert Tips

You can use 1 can (14 to 16 ounces) bean sprouts, rinsed and drained, instead of the fresh bean sprouts. Purchase a prepared peanut sauce instead of making your own. Use 2 1/2 cups of peanut sauce for this recipe.

Matchstick-size or julienne carrots can be purchased in the produce section of the supermarket.
