Mung Beans






Today I am sprouting Mung beans. These beans are one of the easiest beans to digest and don't cause a lot of digestive problems that other beans can. They are good in soups, but I think they taste best sprouted and eaten raw.





The easiest way to sprout most things is to use a wide mouth mason jar. I used a half a cup of mung beans, that when sprouted will fill up most of the jar! You can buy a sprouting lid, or you can use a cheese cloth and rubber band the top.

Soak beans over night. Drain. Rinse twice daily.

The key is good draining. This batch only took two days to sprout because it was so warm out! They usually are done in three days.

According to Chinese medicine mung beans pull out heavy metals and radiation in the body, another great reason to eat them! I plan on using this batch in some Pad Thai.
