Spicy Recipes Bean Sprouts

Bean Sprouts

sun.gif

Mung beans for food are used largely as sprouts. The dry beans are soaked overnight, then placed in a colander in a warm, dark place. Wash bean sprouts two to three times a day with lukewarm water. Sprouts should be moist at all times.

Sprouts can be used after about 5 days. After sprouts are ready, place them in a refrigerator for about 2 days. This procedure will increase the vitamin C content of the sprouts.

Wash and drain sprouts and use them in salads, soups and mixed vegetables. Do not cook them for too long otherwise the vitamin C content diminishes considerably.
