    Kitchen Dictionary: bean sprouts

    Sprouts from mung bean (Phaseolus aureus) have been used for food since ancient times. These sprouts have nutrient value similar to asparagus and mushroom, which contain high quantities of Vitamin A. Sprouts can be canned or frozen in addition to eating them fresh. Mung bean seeds can be purchased from mail-order commercial seed companies and health food chain stores. (Caution: Regardless of the source, do not use seeds that have been treated with a fungicide. Treated seeds are inedible and may be recognized by the pink or green colored coating.)
