Bulk Larry’s Market Organic Mung Beans per 100g
Mung beans, also known as green gram or moong beans, have a crisp, nutty flavour and are ideal for stir-fry and salad recipes. They are small ovoid beans with a yellow interior wrapped in an olive green seed coat. They can be used whole, without skin or sprouted.
Rinse 1 cup beans. Pour into boiling water and cover. Soak overnight, at least 6 hours. Drain and discard soaking water. Add 4 cups fresh water and simmer over low heat until tender, approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Rinse beans in fresh lukewarm water and drain 4 times a day. On the 3rd day, the sprouts will be approximately 1" long. Keep growing sprouts in a dark place. Sprouts will be ready to serve on the 5th day.
Mung beans are most often used as bean sprouts in both Eastern and Western cuisine. They can be used in soups, pastes, and desserts in Chinese and Indian cooking either with or without their green skins, as well as to make vermicelli or other transparent noodles. Mung beans can also be a substitute for split or whole peas.
When stored in a cool and dry location, shelf life is approximately 2 years.
