How to make green bean sprouts (Tauge)

The first recipe I am going to release is an easy and simple one. This is for making green bean sprouts or also known as tauge. Instead of buying this in the supermarket I thought it would be nicer and also better to have it fresh for my dish after. With the tauge grown from this result I made a tahu dish.
