Multi Bean Sprouted Salad In 15 Minutes : A Food Find

Written By Srimathi Mani on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 | 5:03 PM

For a year or so Costco has been selling organic sprouted beans in dry form. This is a great food find because, it makes cooking with it very easy. In less than 15 minutes you can enjoy a bowl of cooked sprouted beans. Over the months I have made use of this ingredient to prepare many kinds of salads, dal, soup or rice dishes. Here is a simple and fresh salad recipe that I would like to share. It can be a great meal or  addition to your meal at anytime.



Gadgets:

Saucepan
Spatula
Colander
Cutting Board
Knife
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Grater


Ingredients:

Dry Sprouted Beans - 1 cup
Carrots, Cucumber, Tomato ( seeds removed) Diced - 3 cups
Serrano Chillies - 1 seeds removed
Cilantro/ Mint/ Parsley - 1 tbsp minced
Ginger - 1 inch
Salt
Fresh Pepper Powder - 1/8th tsp
Lemon Juice -  a tsp or 2
Water 3 cups



Preparation:


1. In a saucepan add 3 cups of water and 1 cup of the dry sprouted beans. Bring to a boil, add salt and reduce the heat to medium, cover and cook the beans for about 10-12 minutes.

2. In the meanwhile, dice the carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes ( seeds removed) evenly.


3. De seed the chilli and dice it into small pieces, grate ginger. Add it to the veggies along with the lemon juice. Toss in the cilantro or mint or parsley mix.

4. Drain the excess liquid from the beans and run it under cold water. This step is important because it removes a funny smell from the cooked bean.Add the beans to the bowl of chopped veggies. Mix and serve them on the side with any kind of food.
