Versatile and Easy to Grow
Mung beans are a versatile sprouting seed that is tasty and super easy to grow. They add a crunchy texture and mild, sweet flavour to salads, sandwiches, wraps, stir-fries, curries and stews.
Originating from the Indian subcontinent, they are widely grown in tropical and warmer climates. Our mung beans, available as organic or untreated seed varieties, are Australian grown.
A staple legume in Asian and Indian cuisine, mung beans are a good source of plant-based protein for vegan and vegetarian diets. Mung beans contain approximately 3 g Protein per 1 cup serving.
Sprout them in a jar for 2 – 3 days and add them to a range of raw food dishes. Make your own protein mix with chickpeas, lentils and mung beans or try our organic protein mix sprouting seeds.
Mung beans can also be grown on a tray for up to five days. The full-sized sprouts (with white tails) are ideal for stir-fries, noodle dishes, and Asian soups. Add bean sprouts to pho, a delicious Vietnamese noodle soup.
Benefits of Mung Bean Sprouts
Grow sprouts all year round and enjoy an abundant supply of fresh, living greens. Mung beans are a low calorie and nutritious way to add protein to your diet. Sprouted legumes, including lentils and chickpeas, add texture to a meal and feel more substantial than tiny seeded varieties (such as broccoli, alfalfa, or kale). As a low GI food, mung beans help you feel fuller for longer.
Dried mung beans store well if kept in cool and dry conditions. Easy to prepare, versatile, and economical, mung beans are a staple pantry item.
