Moong beans are small, green beans that belong to the legume family. Moong beans are incredibly versatile and are typically eaten in salad, soup, and stir-fry.
Sprouting is basically a process where seeds and legumes are germinated and eventually eaten raw. When seeds are soaked in water for a certain period of time, they germinate, causing their outer layers to tear open and allowing a young shoot to blossom. Sprouted grains, legumes, and beans are believed to be very nutritious and healthy.
