Creole Soy Sprouts

Sprouted soybeans, onion, celery and tomatoes.

That the instructions say to melt the soybean oil means one of two things: either she kept her soybean oil in the fridge (which is a good idea if you remember to first put it into a container where you can remove it as a solid) or she was using partially hydrogenated soybean oil, a component in the present formulation of Crisco. (The primary component is soybean oil, but not all of the soybean oil in Crisco is hydrogenated.)
