Moong Beans Sprouts & Carrot Salad

30 Aug

There was lot of questions in me about the freshness of the vegetable being consumed. Usually we buy the vegetables and fruits once in a week and consume it slowly throughtout the week.  I always like to pick up the fresh vegetables and they look damm good in german shops and I occasionaly pick up the frozen easy to cook veggies, fruits and other food items.

As we all know consuming fresh vegetbales is healthy. Now there is a question of freshness in fresh vegetable or packed vegetable? The answer is tricky one.

I see lot of imported fresh vegetables and fruits in the shop looking  good and fresh.. Oranges from Spain, Kiwi from Chile, Grapes from Greece, Tomatoes from Italy and so on..These vegetables has to travel a thousands of kilometers to reach its destination. Imagine that these vegetables has to cross the change in weather and the germs and bacteria in the atmosphere that will affect the nutrients and degrade the quality. But if the vegetables are processed immediately from farm and packed, it may not loose its nutrients.

The Ideal freshness of vegetable is consuming it immediately after harvesting(after cleaning with a mild warm water). While this is not possible for everyone one of us, but there is a option atleast to make your legumes sprouts harvesting in your home….Ready to cook and eat with all nutrients packed in it.

This Sprouts Nutrition chart shows the for information about Vitamins, Minerals and other nutrients present in them.

Here is the recipe for this simple Moon beans salad. Moong beans is also called as green gram.


  1. Moong beans sprouts – 1 cup
  2. Carrot – 1 cup, chopped in to small pieces
  3. Lemon – Juice of half lemon
  4. Pepper – 1/4 tsp
  5. Salt for taste.


1. Just add all the ingredients together and enjoy it.
