sprouted moong (mung beans)

I use a Victorio seed sprouter that I got from here:

Benefits of sprouting:

* Makes vitamins (especially B and C) and minerals more available.

* Increases amount of soluble fiber

* Makes the seed/legume more easily digestible

It works well in places where humidity is variable. It is essentially a series of compartments and at the top we add water, the amount varying depending on the seed and the relative humidity of the surroundings.

Moong beans are among the easiest legumes to sprout. Soaking time: 6-8 hours. Sprouts in 2 days. In summer time when relative humidity is high, no additional water is required in the top tray. When humidity dips below 50%, I add 1/4 cup of water once a day.
