A few weeks ago I posted some information about “sprouting”, growing your own sprouts for cooking, salads, etc. I’ve have quite a few questions since then, so I wanted to give you an update.
I have three varieties of sprouts that I’m using. I purchased all of them from smile.amazon.com. The reason I use the “smile” before the Amazon.com is that a portion of every purchase we make automatically goes to whatever charity or non-profit I would like it to go to. In our case, we chose the Teller County Animal Shelter. It’s a “no kill” shelter and we want to support them. If you choose to use smile.amazon.com, you can set it up for the charity of your choice.
I use mung beans and two other mixes. One of the mixes is a salad variety and we really like it. It has several different seeds in it and provides a nice extra flavor in our salads. The other mix is a variety of beans/peas and is good to add to almost anything, such as salads, soups, stir fry, etc. Mung beans, however, are a good staple to have for a large variety of recipes and add-ons for everything you make.
There are a lot of recipes online for using mung beans, but here are some that I think you’ll really like. Click on the picture to see the recipes.
Happy (sprouting) cooking!
