It was my mom’s subtle way of letting us know that we were officially on a health spree. I have to say this happened very often, sometime after my mom had read an article about how heart healthy the sprouts are or sometime because she was rather bore eating the beans the usual way. But it most of the time it was the invitation for a family wedding that tiger the sudden urge of this healthy eating in her. I remember how my mom enjoyed dressing up, it was her implacable passion for clothes, her beautifully sharp pencil heels, her neatly pulled back hair up do’s and her graceful style always left the little girl in me wondering that will I be like her one day or not? She exactly knew how to deal with any excess weight that she had put on enjoying food and look her best in the dress she want to flaunt in the next family wedding. Sprouted beans always did the trick for mom; in her words “not only they keep you looking good from outside but they keep you healthy and fit from the inside”.
I have to admit I was never the fan of this ritual growing up and never really found myself loving the sprouted beans but I am glad that this changes totally as I grew. I have to say I love the taste of sprouted beans and enjoy them in every form.
As they say, “Daughters are the reflection of their mothers”, I am if not completely but sure a lot like my mom. So whenever I am on my healthy eating wagon you can always find a batch of sprouted beans in my kitchen.
Today’s recipe is a simple salad made with sprouted mung beans along with other ingredients. There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to this recipe, go with your heart, add in what you like and in quantities you prefer. I am sure you will enjoy it and have fun making this recipe and sprouting some beans in your kitchen.
Have a Beautiful Week!!!
