Bean sprouts are a type of seed sprouts that are grown from mung beans. To grow them, you'll first need to soak the beans in water for about a day, then set them in a warm and humid place. The beans will then start to sprout within a few days. The sprouts are commonly used in Asian cuisine, as they are often stir-fried or eaten raw in salads. The sprouts are high in vitamin C and fiber, low in calories, and have a crunchy texture. They are often used in spring rolls, soups, stir-fries, and many other dishes.
