TruRoots Organic Sprouted Bean Trio

I am just crazy for this new pre-soaked, sprouted bean/lentil product. Of course, it’s organic, but it’s also available for a great price at Costco! It’s the TruRoots Organic Sprouted Bean Trio and it contains mung beans, green lentils and adzuki beans.

Most of us know we should be eating beans and lentils once our guts have stabilized to the point where they can digest them. But whilst your gut may not be able to handle canned beans, it may be just fine with this product as the beans and lentils are already soaked and sprouted – thus making them much easier to digest.

In a perfect world you would have enough time to soak and sprout your own beans and lentils, but for many of us, that extra step means we avoid these highly nutritious foods. Which is the other reason I LOVE this product – it’s actually easier and faster to make than rice!

Also, if you’ve read Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Body and you’re trying his weight loss plan, then these are your carb component – and they are way healthier than restaurant or canned varieties.

The manufacturer gives you these great ways to use the Sprouted Bean Trio:

  • Puree with olive oil for a spread or dip [I add Moroccan or kalamata olives to mine as well]
  • Wrap into a tortilla with salsa and avocado
  • Cook into a pilaf with rice and spices
  • Toss with herbs and a light salad dressing
  • Pack into a pita pocket with greens and dressing
  • Mix into rice or barley or other grains side dishes

But I have developed some favorite recipes of my own to incorporate this product – that even my kids will eat:

  1. This is nice for people who have no time, you can sprouts these three beans yourself if you have an extra 5 min a day. Mung Beans practically sprout overnight. The advantage of doing it yourself is money saving, satisfaction of growing your own food and most importantly your fresh sprouted beans will hydrate you since they are full of liquid. Eating fresh sprouted beans will provide you with digestive enzymes and nutrients not available in cooked one.



  2. I also love this product but tonight Costco says they won’t be carrying it anymore. I think we should all hound them and let them know that we shop there exactly because they started carrying better quality food. They need to know that there is a growing movement of people who demand food out there. Great site!

  3. This great product isn’t pictured among the products on the TruRoots website anymore. I think they must have stopped distributing it.



  4. I find these take alot longer to cook soft than pkg directions. Is it just me or do any others feel they taste undercooked?



  5. LISA – yes, if you want them to be soft like ‘baked beans’ then definitely cook them longer than directed. Some people like the chewier texture. I agree with you though, I like them softer.
