SPROUTING: THE LENTIL EDITION

Lentil Sprouts

This week I got inspired by this post by the talented Gabrielle of Honest Fare. Yes, I’m on a health kick nowadays. Sprouting is SUPER easy. You should try it too!

Here’s how you do it:

1. Measure about 1/2 cup of lentils and rinse well, making sure to get rid of all the spoiled pieces or any dirt floating around. Let them soak them overnight.

2. The following morning, rinse again and place in a glass jar. I covered mine with a piece of cheesecloth.

3. Rinse twice a day and make sure to remove all excess water to avoid slime. Do this for about 4 to 5 days. Watch them grow, like this…

4.You’ll get a beautiful jar of sprouted lentils. Just remove them from the jar and place them in a bowl. Refrigerate covered with a damp paper towel.

5. Add them to your salads, smoothies, sandwiches… look at this beauty.
