Thanks for your interest. I went to Bio this morning and they sell them as beansprouts. Chinese for tea tonight !

We buy mung beans from the Biocoop in Carhaix, the home grown ones have a really nice, nutty flavour and are quick to sprout.

It really could not be easier - you can sprout any seed or grain (mung beans as above, alfalfa, lentils, adzuki beans, peas - I'm doing red cabbage at the minute!) - soak a few overnight in a jam jar, then rinse them the next day, and every day after that - twice if you remember - you should see them sprouting after 24 hours, and they'll be ready to start eating as you need them after about 3 or 4 days.  I have some on the go constantly, they are so good for you and really it could not be any more simple!

Try the BIOCOOP in Carhaix. If they don't have the beans sprouts themselves they'll have the mung beans - along with many other seeds for sprouting.

Like you we love Chinese food , cooked at home, so why not grow your own bean sprouts?

You can buy Mung beans online and its so easy to grow them,
