One of my favorite foods to grow, or sprout, are mung beans because you have the choice of sprouting them a little or a lot! In fact, I have to have them in my fridge every week to prepare quick recipes like salad, soup, Indian chaats, sabji, curry and more! This time, I am making sprouted moong bean cutlets or tikkis for the change.
Mung beans will sprout into delicious little plump beans with a nutty flavor in about 2-3 days or longer, crunchy bean sprouts in 5 days. Mung beans are high in important vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Sprouted mung beans contain fewer calories but have more antioxidants and amino acids.
