Description

Organic Sprouted Mung Beans (also called moong beans or green gram) are one of our favourite things to sprout because they become the perfect middle ground between a legume and a vegetable. These small but mighty beans are high in protein, iron and fibre. Unlike other beans, they don’t cause a buildup of gas in the digestive system. They have a mild taste and tender texture.

These mung beans have been through a slow soaking and sprouting period, so no pre-soaking is needed. This improves their digestibility, enhances their taste and texture, and reduces their cook time to just 10 minutes. Mung beans have been sprouted in Asia for centuries to make a variety of traditional dishes. Moong dal (split mung bean soup) is popular in India, bindae-tteok (savoury mung bean pancakes) are enjoyed in Korea, and balatong (savoury stew with seafood) is traditionally served in the Philippines. In China, they even use it as a filling for mooncakes, dumplings and a base for ice cream!

Because of their mild taste, sprouted mung beans work well in both sweet and savoury dishes. They are wonderful in soups, stews, curries, stir fry, beans and rice, and salads. When pureed, they make a perfectly creamy base for dips, ice cream, pastry filling and more. You can find delicious recipes here..

Storage & Shelf Life

After sprouting, we carefully dry the beans back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted beans – in a cool, dry place.

Once you cook your sprouted pulses, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Shelf life: 2 years

    We were looking for something new for our meatless Mondays and were intrigued by mung beans. Lots of fibre, protein and iron. I found a recipe for a stew and it was fabulous. Mung beans are the newest addition to our pantry!
