DIY Tuesday’s: Grow Your Own Sprouts!
Use any variety of lentils you like but make sure they are whole.
Measure out a cup of lentils (make sure there are no damaged beans) and rinse in cool water. Let them soak overnight in the water for 8-12 hours.
You’ll see your beans are nice and fat the next day. Strain excess water, repeat rinse/strain process. Transfer the seeds to a large jar (filling no more than 1/3 of the jar with seeds so there have room to grow.
Cover opening of jar with a cheesecloth and hold it in place with a rubber band. For the next few days just rinse the seeds w/ fresh water daily by filling jar and draining through the cheesecloth (2x/day)
Every time you rinse give the jar a good shake upside down to make sure all the water is out. You want your jar to be moist but too much water can cause slime (yuck!).
After approximately 24 hours in the jar you’ll start to see the beans splitting and may see some sprouts beginning to form. Keep monitoring the lentils growth, giving them fresh rinses and draining for approximately 4-5 days. Once that green leaf pokes out and starts to unfold, they’re ready to harvest!
Nutritional value of sprouts: Sprouts have 35% protein, contain vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, and also contain calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron & potassium!
We like using them in salads and on sandwiches :)
yay, no cheesecloth required!
I’m at subway pickin’ out flavours.
I wish you could all come with me, it’d be a great lunch out with all m’fitties.
