Healthy & Easy Sprout Salad Recipe (Step by Step)



In my last post, I shared a 21-day plant based challenge with a goal to consume a minimum of 5 servings of vegetables and 2 -3 servings of fruits every day. If you haven’t started the challenge, I would encourage you to do so.


To support this initiative, I am sharing a plant based sprout salad recipe today. It’s not only easy to make but also is infused with flavors that are guaranteed to pack a punch. The sprouting process enhances nutrition content of the beans and sprouts tend to have higher levels of essential amino acids.


Ingredients

  • 3 cups of sprouted Mung beans (Green Gram) You can use any other sprouted beans

  • 1 Apple

  • 1 Red or Yellow Bell Pepper

  • 1 Cucumber

  • Chopped Cilantro & Mint

  • ½ tablespoon of Lemon Juice

  • Salt and Pepper

  • Chat masala (Optional)


Directions

  • Sprout Beans first- In order to do that, soak 2-3 cups of mung beans in water for 8-12 hours. Drain water and store the beans in a glass container for another 6-8 hours. Here’s a link for more detailed instructions if you're doing it for the first time. You can also purchase sprouted beans in health food stores to skip this process.

  • Mix sprouted Mung Beans (You can add any other variety of sprouts), finely chopped apple, cucumber, bell pepper, mint and cilantro.

  • Mix the above ingredients with freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, pepper and chat masala.

  • Refrigerate for an hour or so and enjoy!




Eating plant based food is not an all-or-nothing approach. Rather than focusing on things to avoid, focus on the foods you can add to your diet and let the plants do their magic!
