Mung Bean Sprouts

Sprouting Mung Beans

Sprouting is amazing! You take a dormant seed/bean, rinse it off, and then you start to grow a mini-plant. This little plant begins multiplying its nutrients and breaking down certain components; leading to easier digestion. Mung beans are easy to sprout, with a little patience. They are full of nutrients, including trace minerals that are hard to incorporate into your diet without them. Sprouted mung beans are high in fiber and vitamins C & K.

To produce sprouts, all you need is: a sprouting jar (can be a mason jar with a screen lid,) mung beans, a bowl to set the jar in, and some water. Mung Bean Sprouts

  1. Add 2-4 Tbsp Mung Beans to your sprouting jar
  2. Cover with 3x as much water as beans; soak overnight
  3. Rinse beans thoroughly and drain water out of jar–set the sprouting jar at an angle in a bowl that is large enough that it won’t fall out
  4. Rinse beans twice a day for 2-3 days and return to tilted stance in bowl–how long it takes depends on temperature, humidity, etc…
  5. Place the clean mung beans in the refrigerator. They are bad when they start to turn brown, soften, and/or taste “off.” +
