My Lentils Sprouts Are Ready to Eat!
It's been five days since I first started sprouting my lentils, and they're finally ready to eat!
I enjoy trying new foods, but these do kind of look strange so I was a little scared to eat them at first. They're actually really good tasting! I've been munching on them throughout the day and put them in a wrap for lunch. Tomorrow I'll throw some in a salad.
To Sprout Lentils
- A Jar
- A Sprouting lid,
- Or you can use cheesecloth or some other material (I used some scrap sheer fabric leftover from making my produce bags) held on with an elastic.
- Dry lentils
- Rinse your dry lentils a few times. (First post here)
- Soak them over night in water.
- By the next day they should have expanded. Rinse them well multiple times throughout the day. (Second post here)
- Continue to rinse them often for the next couple of days.
- By the fifth day they should be fully sprouted and ready to eat!
In the picture - havarti cheese, romaine lettuce, lentil sprouts and ranch dressing. Not shown - I added tomatoes, cucumber, green peppers and onions. In my own opinion, it was so delicious! The lentil sprouts added a nice crunch. Other than that they don't have much of a flavour on their own.
Since this was such a success I plan on sprouting other things in the future and will keep you posted!
