Sprouts apple and pomegranate salad

SPROUTS APPLE AND POM SALAD

Moong beans and moth beans sprouts along with apple and pomegranate.

The apple adds texture and crunch while the pomegranate lends a sweet taste and clears the palate.

A very healthy salad with very little calories. It is also wholesome and can replace a meal.

I have sprouted the dals at home. Soak the two dals together for about 10 hours. Then drain all the water. Fill a bowl with an inch of water. Place the sprouts on a mesh and placed the mesh above the bowl. Cover the mesh with foil and place the whole thing in a dry place for 12 hours. Once the dals have sprouted, remove from mesh and discard the water in the bowl.

You may even add a pear instead of apple or along with it.

I have used a simple dressing of lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.

 

Ingredients:

1. Moth beans Sprouts – ½ cup

2. Green Gram whole (Moong) sprouts – ½ cup

3. Apple – 1 medium, chopped into cubes

4. Pomegranate – 1 medium, deseeded

5. Lemon juice – 2 tsp

6. Extra virgin Olive oil – 2 tsp

7. Salt to taste

8. Pepper powder – a pinch

9. Dried mint leaves – ½ tsp
