Sprouted Mung Bean Salad in Tamari Ginger Dressing

Comments : 2 Posted in : Food, Recipes on by : Reema Tags: , , , , , ,

London takes on a whole new persona when the summer sun shines. People are friendlier, happier, brighter. Sunny dresses are out in all their girly glory, as are the sandals and sun cream. Summer also means lazy BBQs and refreshing salads – hooray!! Most definitely, my favourite time of the year.

After a super indulgent Wales trip followed by a decadent birthday weekend, my body craved some clean eating. Thankfully, the summer sun is feeding my healthy eating drive and I’ve been whipping up tasty salad storms.

Pre-sprouted green mung beans were my chosen base for the salad along with carrots and spinach.  I could have used soy sauce in my dressing but  went with the gluten-free, thicker and less salty tamari sauce on this occasion. The sprouted mung beans are here for their known health benefits but honestly, feel free to put whatever you want here.

The fresh tamari ginger dressing is the star here and makes everything taste fabulous. 🙂
