This is a really flexible sprouted bean salad that is a combination of sprouted mung beans, sprouted green lentils, and sprouted adzuki beans. Read on for ideas on how to use this threesome of beans.
1 cup truRoots Organic Sprouted Bean Trio
2/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
1/3 cup peeled, diced cucumber
3 tbsp thinly sliced scallions
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp ground cumin
salt to taste
Combine the sprouted beans in 3 cups water. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand covered for 10 minutes. Drain as needed. Cool as needed. Combine all ingredients and toss well.
Other ideas to try: toss with herbs and salad dressing, cook into a pilaf with rice and spices, pack into a pita with greens and dressing, puree with olive oil for a spread or dip, mix into rice, barley, or other grain dishes, wrap into a tortilla (gluten free) with salsa and avocado.
To make the bean mix, buy the organic mung beans, organic green lentils, and organic adzuki beans, combine in equal parts to make the mix. Sprout the beans before using. You generally don’t need to cook the beans if you sprout them yourself. The purchased bean mix has dried beans in it.
