- Soak mung bean in slightly salted water for 4 to 5 hours. Soaking helps to draw out lectins and phytates in legumes, as well as activating enzymes that break down indigestible starches and sugars. These starches and sugars are responsible for flatulence, as they ferment in your gut to produce gas.
- After soaking, it is ready to be boil and cooked into mung bean dessert.
- Or you may sprout it to have it as a snack or add on to your favourite dish.
