Instructions
Stove-Top Preparation
  1. Sort and rinse 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Mung Beans. Place in a medium size pot and add 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until tender, about 25 minutes. Make sure to keep beans covered with water during cooking; if water level is low, add additional water and reduce the cooking temperature. Makes approximately 3-1/2 cups cooked beans.
Pressure Cooker Prep
  1. Sort and rinse 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Mung Beans. Place in pressure cooker and add 3 cups of water. Secure lid, set pressure to high and begin heating on high heat. When steam begins a steady flow from the release valve, reduce heat to low and let cook for 6 - 8 minutes. When cooking time has completed, turn heat off and allow pressure to decrease naturally for 15 minutes. Carefully remove lid and drain water from beans.
Sprouting Instructions
  1. Sort and rinse 1/3-cup mung beans. Place in a bowl or jar with 1 cup cool water. Cover with a clean cloth and let soak at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours, then rinse again. Repeat for 2 to 3 days for little sweet sprouts, or 4 to 5 days for bigger sprouts.
