Moong Sprouts Stir-fry

Sprouts are considered to be superfood and they contain largest amount of nutrients compared to any other food.They are packed with nutrients like iron,vitamin C,proteins and enzymes.The sprouting process increases the enzyme concentration, so they are easy to digest.Sprouts are considered to be living foods,they continue to grow slowly even after you keep them in the fridge and their vitamin content increases.They are inexpensive and easy to make at home.

When I harvest sprouts once,I store them in the fridge for upto a week.You can use them in a variety of recipes.Just throw a handful in your salad, soup,curry or rice.They never bore you.

Here is a very simple recipe of Moong sprouts stir-fry.I am sending this as an entry to My Legume Love Affair 26 started by Susan of ‘The well seasoned cook’ and hosted by Simona of Briciole.

I am also sending this to sidedishes other than dals/subzis hosted by Suma of Veggieplatter.

  3. Then add onion and saute for a minute.Now add tomatoes and saute.
