Sprouts Salad - Mung Bean

Sprouts are extremely nutritious. They help in weight loss, balancing hormones and a good source of protein.
Sprouts Salad - Mung Bean


- 1 cup Mung Beans

- 1 medium Cucumber, diced

- 1 small Onion, finely chopped

- Handful of fresh Cilantro, finely chopped

- 1/2 Lemon

- Black Salt, to taste

- Pepper, to taste


1. Sprouting the Mung Beans:

- Rinse the mung beans thoroughly and soak them in enough water to cover for about 8 hours or overnight.

- After soaking, drain the water and transfer the mung beans to a sprouting jar, sprout maker, or any container with a lid.

- Place the container in a warm, dark place, and allow the mung beans to sprout. This usually takes about 1-2 days, depending on the temperature.

- Rinse the sprouts with water every 8-12 hours to keep them moist.

2. Preparing the Salad:

- Once the mung beans have sprouted to your desired length (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch), rinse them under warm water for about 3 minutes to remove any residual husks or dirt and to remove any bacteria. (since sprouts grow in moist, warm conditions)

- Transfer the sprouted mung beans to a large salad bowl.

3. Adding the Vegetables:

- Add the diced cucumber and finely chopped onion to the bowl with the sprouted mung beans.

4. Seasoning:

- Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the salad.

- Sprinkle black salt and pepper to taste.

- Add the freshly chopped cilantro on top.

5. Mixing and Serving:

- Gently toss all the ingredients together until everything is well combined and evenly coated with the lemon juice and seasonings.

- Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.

- Serve the refreshing sprout salad immediately as a light and nutritious meal or as a side dish to complement any main course.


- You can customize this salad by adding other vegetables such as tomatoes, bell peppers, or carrots.

- For extra flavor, you can also add a dash of chaat masala or cumin powder.

- This salad is best enjoyed fresh but can be refrigerated for up to 2 days in an airtight container.

Enjoy this wholesome and delicious sprout salad packed with nutrients and vibrant flavors! It's a perfect way to incorporate healthy eating into your daily routine.
