   Hints:
   
   To cook bean thread, immerse it in boiling water for
   about 10 minutes to soften. Drain, rinse with cool
   water, and cut into 3-inch strands.
   
   For those concerned about complete protein, tofu,
   peanuts and sesame seeds complement one another to
   form a high-quality “complete” protein.
