Moong sprout salad

Moong sprout salad

This healthy sprout salad is prepared with sprouted whole moong dal (also called mung beans), as well as sprouted whole moth dal (also called moth or mat beans). You can use any vegetables and spices of your choice other than the ones used here.

Do not boil or steam the sprouts, as this will deactivate the enzymes. The salad's nutritional value would then be much reduced.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I'm very interested in trying this recipe because it looks delicious. I'll have to get more mung beans to sprout.

Yes, they taste better. I read somewhere sprout about half an inch long have the maximum vitamin and mineral content. They definitely do taste different than the much larger ones. Thanks for stopping by Doris.

Thank you Umesh

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on January 28, 2020:

I love mung bean sprouts marinated in a vingarette. This looks like the beans are just opening and haven't actually sprouted yet. I guess they would taste different from the ones with 2-inch sprouts?

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on January 28, 2020:
