View Full Version : how to get the "hulls" off after sprouting
09-23-2005, 03:45 PM
So, I'd like to do my own sprouting but I'm thinking back to a few months ago when I sprouted some mung beans for one of the recipes in Alissa's book. It took me foreverrrrrr to get all the hulls off of 4 cups of sprouts for the recipe. It was almost like I had to de-hull each one individually. Is there some trick to getting them off relatively fast or easy?

I was told that it helps if you soak the mung in hot water, then use the spray setting on your faucet with a strong water flow when rinsing them. I haven't tried it. I've just been eating them with the hulls on.

Hmm I'll keep the hot water thing in mind. Of course your reply brings up a new question, I just assumed I needed to remove the hulls after sprouting, is this not the case?

I eat lentil hulls- but I haven't sprouted mung yet!
so what hulls are edible? :confused:

I suggest a comfortable chair and a good TV show because that is the way that I get through it. It lessens the tedium.
