We found this great new product at Costco “Organic Sprouted Bean Trio” by tru Roots. It’s a quick – cooking and nutritious blend of lentils, adzuki and mung beans. Perfect for soup, salad or side dishes.
These are very easy to cook. Combine 1 cup sprouted bean trio with 3 cups water or broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes or until desired tenderness is achieved. Drain excess water and serve. If you like lentils and beans, you will love this trio!
