3     tablespoons butter
2     cups celery, thinly sliced
1  cups onion, sliced
    teaspoon pepper
1     teaspoon salt
2     cups chicken broth

2  cups mung bean sprouts
2     tablespoons cornstarch
3     tablespoons soy sauce
       rice noodles, soaked in hot water for 20 minutes
2     tablespoons peanut oil

2     drops sesame oil
