Sprouting Lentils at Home
These flavour packed lentils give salads and soups a nice boost. When you eat alive foods, you can tell. They have a strong peppery taste so a few go a long way. In Canada's long winters, fresh alive green foods are a welcome addition to any meal.
Fill a mason jar 1/2 full of lentils, and then fill with water.
Let sit for a day, then drain water.
Tip jar upside down on a dish, and rinse every 8 hours with tap water.
Once the little leaves show yellow/green, rinse them and store them lightly covered in the fridge. Remember to rinse them daily while being stored.
