Mung Bean Sprouts Success at last

These mung beans are sprouted from the tiny variety of mung beans at the Indian market. Other varieties are larger to begin with and the sprouts are thicker. As the spouts begin to grow, I covered them with several layers of damp newspaper then put a sack of marbles on top to offer resistance to the sprouts. As they grow they push the marbles up creating a thicker stem on the sprout.


  1. I've been reading your blog ever since I saw it in the Daily Universe. Last night we had Black beans over pasta (spaghetti noodles) topped with sour cream & salsa. Sometimes we have peanuts too. (And for our veggie-zucchini sauteed in garlic on the side.) I thought it was something you might like to try.

  2. Fantastic! I will look forward to trying this combination. I like new adventures.
