Masala Moong Sprouts Recipe | How To Make It

Masala Moong Sprouts

Every time I buy moong sprouts at the grocery store, they always seem to be wilted or old. But when I make them myself, from scratch and in my kitchen with love- freshness is ensured!

When you shop for groceries do you notice how tired your produce stocks are? It's like a part of me that wants to say "no" everytime but it has been hard battling this instinct because sometimes there just isn't enough money left over after paying bills. When we grow our own food instead of buying it though--snapping up those beans as soon as they're ripe means plenty more flavorful meals on the table without costing an arm and a leg!
