Easy Sprouting
Health Highlights


1/3 cup Mung beans, raw


Place mung beans in a bowl, cover with water and soak overnight.

Drain in a fine-mesh colander and rinse well. Once drained place colander over a bowl.

Rinse every 8-12 hours (morning and night works) — shaking a little to make sure they all get rinsed.

You will see the little sprouts shoot out soon — some earlier than others depending on the legume or grain. For example, Quinoa is very fast.

When they are done (I like 1/4-inch tail or less) place them in a jar in the fridge. Eat within a few days.


*You can use quinoa, buckwheat -- or whatever grain or bean your sprouting-heart desires (except kidney beans).

*Prep time reflects 8-12 hours of rinsing
