Mung beans, when cooked, have a nutty flavour and a texture similar to lentils. They are a great source of protein and fibre.
Germinated mung beans begin to generate vitamins such as A, B and C and minerals like Iron, Magnesium. You can grow them into little shoots within a few days, giving you fresh, crunchy mung bean shoots when ever you want (much better than supermarket packets).
Add mung beans to boiling water and leave to simmer for about 30 minutes or until tender. If you have a pressure cooker, these will be ready in 10-15 minutes and if you want them really soft (to the point they start to break down), boil them between 40-50 minutes.
Soak the beans overnight (or for 8-12 hours). Drain, rinse and then leave in a germinating vessel or a jar with muslin cloth secured over the top, tilted at a 45° angle. Leave the beans for 12 hours and keep out of direct sunlight and away from any hot places. After 12 hours, rinse beans and put back in the germinator. Repeat this every 12 hours for about three days. You will see little white buds appearing from the beans. You can grow the beans several days more if you want longer sprouts (and the rinses can be reduced to once every 24 hours).
