Sprouted Bean Salad Recipe

This sprouted bean salad recipe was a variation of the one that was printed on the back of the tru Roots Organic Sprouted Bean Trio bag. Never heard of this combination? Well I had not either, but I love trying any new legume blends. This one caught my attention because it was a blend of sprouted green lentils, sprouted adzuki, and sprouted mung beans! I grabbed a 3 pound bag at Costco, hoping I would love them.

Fortunately, they are awesome and a healthy diet habit that will allow you to eat less meat! They cook quickly in 15 minutes, contain 11 grams each of fiber and protein per serving, and are a low-glycemic choice! Besides being quick, they are versatile.

You can use them with:


  • salads
  • rice dishes
  • pitas with greens and dressing
  • as a puree with olive oil like hummus
  • grain dishes
  • Tortillas and wraps with salsa and avocado.


You definitely will want to cook a good amount at one time to use as leftovers or to re-purpose into another meal!

Directions for Bean Salad Recipe

  • Add the bean trio and water and bring them to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered for 10 more minutes. Drain, if needed. Let cool.
  • Combine the beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, and salt and pepper in a bowl and toss well.
  • I actually used Trader Joe’s fat-free balsamic vinaigrette, rather than the oil and lemon.
  • 8 side dish servings or six main dish servings.


We ate this delicious salad as a main dish for a Meatless Monday meal! The protein count of 11 grams makes this a great meat substitute for any day of the week! It’s a frugal choice and healthy diet habit to include more beans in your diet. They are full of fiber, which will keep you full and satisfied!
