Mung Bean Sprouts Salad with Parsley Root and Carrot

Labels: { , , } | © 2013 |

Mung bean sprouts contain various vitamins, in addition to an assortment of minerals including calcium, iron, and potassium. They are free of cholesterol, and are ideal for anyone counting calories. Bean sprouts are gaining popularity as a health food, appearing in a wide variety of dishes from salads to soups, wraps or just as a healthy snack. Making sprouts at home is easier than you think and they are generally fresher and better than any store bought one. Please head over to Norma's Garden to Wok for the detailed instructions on growing sprouts at home.

  • 100 g Mung bean sprouts
  • 100 g Parsley root, finely grated
  • 50 g Carrot, finely grated
  • 8 Belgian endive leaves
  • 1 tbsp Pomegranate seeds
  • Raspberry vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Peel and finely grate parsley root and carrot with a mandolin. Arrange Belgian endive leaves in a salad bowl. Place the grated vegetables in the center. Scatter the mung bean sprouts and pomegranate seeds over.
  2. Add the olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste and toss gently the grated vegetables, mung bean sprouts, pomegranate seeds together. | © 2013 | | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

A beautiful salad! I love everything about it.



StephenC 26/2/13 16:18

I am not familiar with parsley root. Is it anything like celeriac? I'll only see a reply here:

Angie's Recipes 26/2/13 16:33


Parsley root is light beige, shaped like a carrot. Farmers here even call them white carrot. It's different from celery root, but very much like a parsnip.

Sissi over at With a Glass just posted a slightly different Mung Bean Sprout salad. I dare say I have not tried sprouted beans from home, I really need to get around to it. Sounds like a great, fresh recipe for the middle of winter.

When I was attending a holistic health college, there was a study on sprouts. It was a lot of fun. Since then, I had completely forgotten it until I read your post. The salad looks delicious. I'll have to try making my own sprouts again. They taste terrific and are so cheap to make.

Hi Angie, interesting salad, look so appetizing. Love the combo, delicious.
Best regards.

the way you arranged it looks like a flower! beautiful and not to mention, healthy too!

tigerfish 5/3/13 02:36

Though CNY is over, looking at this actually reminded me of Yu Sheng, this a meatless one though. Looks so fresh and healthy!

Elisabeth 5/3/13 16:57

I'm down at the bottom of the list...last, but not 'least' commenter...just catching up, or trying to!
If this super healthy salad does not cure any illness, or beat anything that 'ails' you...then I don't know what will! I always buy parsley root for my soups, and mix it in my mashed potatoes (cook with the potatoes)...everything is so wonderfully combined, and artistically designed:) Superb!

Anonymous 9/3/13 17:47

That's a really lovely presentation and I am sure it tastes wonderful :)

Viviane Bauquet Farre - Food and Style 10/3/13 20:48

Oh... Angie, This looks absolutely scrumptious! Bravo!
