2 small firm tomatoes
8-1/2 inch long English Cucumber pieces

1/4 cup moong sprouts
1/2 teaspoon oil
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Few drops of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of water

Cream Cheese Topping
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon minced ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch of black pepper
1 teaspoon finely chopped cilantro or dill


Prepare Sprouts: In a small frying pan, heat the oil on medium heat. Add cumin seeds and as they crack add sprouts, ginger, black pepper and water. Cook for 2-3 minutes until sprouts are tender. Remove pan from heat. Add lemon juice, stir and set aside.
Prepare cream cheese topping by mixing all the ingredients. Set aside.
Cut tomatoes in half and scoop out the seeds creating hollow bowls.
Take cucumber slices and scoop out the seeds, creating small bowls.
Fill all tomatoes and 4 cucumber slices with moong sprouts.
Fill the remaining 4 cucumber slices with cream cheese filling.
Serve and enjoy!
Sprouts preparation
Soak the whole moong for 10 to 12 hours. Water should be about four times more than the Moong.
After soaking moong, it will double in volume.
Drain the water and loosely wrap the beans with the muslin or cheesecloth. Store the soaked beans in a warm dark place


This is a mildly spiced, refreshing and healthy appetizer. Tomatoes and cucumbers are filled with sprouted moong or flavored cream cheese. It makes an amazingly colorful finger food that is easy to prepare and tastes incredible.
