I hope that you are all doing well during this self-isolation time. To some of us, getting groceries have been a problem, so today I’d like to share with you on how we can easily grow bean sprouts at home.
Grow Bean Sprouts at Home
8 oz mung beans
1 washing bowl
1 cheesecloth, or replace with paper towels
2 kitchen towels
Rinse the mung beans thoroughly.
Soak in 3 cups of water overnight. If any beans flow up to the top, it means that they are not good anymore, take them out.
The next day, the mung beans should double in size. The skins of mung beans are partially opened up, and little spouts might also come out. Rinse and drain.
(You could use a steamer, or a strainer and a large bowl to do this.) For us, we are going to use a set of a colander and a washing bowl today. Place a wet cheesecloth over the steamer. (You could also replace it with wet paper towels.) Spread the mung beans all over evenly. Cover with the cheesecloth. Water them 2 times a day, morning and night. Throw away the water on the bottom. Cover with a plate (By doing so, your bean sprouts will grow thicker.) Cover up with 2 kitchen towels. It will be best if you have 2 black color towels. Place the pot in a cool and dark place. Avoid direct sunlight. If the sprouts see the sun then they will turn color.)
