How to Make Your Own Mung Bean Sprout

Mung bean sprout is a very versatile vegetables which is used in many Filipino and other Asian dishes.  Filipinos have developed many recipes where bean sprouts are added.  

In our side of the world here in Qatar, bean sprout is a bit expensive at more than QR 10  (P100+) per pack of less than 200 g. That's the reason why my husband decided that we grow our own bean sprout and so we did.  

Here is how.  This makes about 6 to 7 cups of bean sprout.

How to cook bean sprouts?  Check our Bean sprout recipe collection.

You need :

Container enough to contain those 6 to 7 cups of bean sprouts

Ingredients :
Mung Beans - 2 c.

Procedure :

1.  Wash the mung beans at least thrice to remove any dirt and grimes.
2.  Place the mung beans in a container then pour water over it at least 1 cm above the beans.
3.  Cover the the container and soak the beans overnight.
4.  The following day, remove the water and drain.  Rinse with cold water then add fresh water and soak it for another night. Do this twice if you plan to soak the mung beans for 3 days as we did.

Make sure that you place the container with the mung beans away from direct sunlight.
