Bean sprouts use extensively in Asian cooking. They can be used in stir fried, soup, and salad. We use Mung beans for sprouting. Sprouting is very easy but you have to be very patient as the process spreads over 3-4 days.
Bean sprout is the source of amino acids, vitamins and fiber. It is very healthy and nutritious.
How to make beans sprout at home
Soak 1 cup of mung beans for 4 hours in day light.
Layer the light resistant vessel with the wet clean kitchen towel or any wet clean cloth.
Spread soaked mung beans over the first layer, and cover with another wet cloth.
(You can repeat the process 3 times to create 3 layers)
Sprinkle about 1 cup of water over it and keep it cover with the lid. Keep the vessel in the dark warm place.
Day 2, open the lid and sprinkle about 1 cup of water over it. Close the lid and leave it in the dark warm place.
Day 3, open the lid and sprinkle about 1 cup of water over it. Close the lid and leave it in the dark warm place.
Day 4, your sprout should grow enough for harvesting.
Open the lid and remove the layer of cloth and gently remove the sprouts from the cloth. Transfer the sprouts to another large vessel with water.
Wash gently and pick the sprouts. Remove any caps that remain on the sprouts.
Now they are ready to cook or you can keep them in refrigerator up to 3 days.
