Sprouts are quick ,easy and pleasantly healthy .They add extra nutrition to your salad/wraps/snacks.
Sprouts are one of the most easily available and cheap vegetables that each of us can easily grow.
All you need is legumes,grains beans and dampness not a green thumb and sunlight. I have been growing my own variety of sprouts for years now. Do you remember science projects from school days involving sprouting with few beans and result would be something live and green. Lets talk about the benefits now
It increases vitamin B,C and the fiber content
Sprouting is less allergic to those with sensitivity/trouble digesting legumes/beans
Decrease the presence of anti nutrients
Soak overnight legumes and beans (8-12) hours
Here I have used 1 cup of whole Green Mong from my pantry following the rule 3:1 (three parts of water and one part of mong ) Rinse and drain the next morning. Cover it with wet dripping paper towel. Keep it inside the cabinet or in a closed oven. Sprouts will be ready in a day or two.
