Sprouting (How To)



  • 2 tbsp legumes/beans/nuts or seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • cheesecloth
  • large mason jar


Soak legume, grain or seed (whichever you're choosing to sprout) overnight in a bowl of water.

Rinse well the next day and discard soaking water.

Place the rinsed beans in a large mason jar and cover jar with a piece of cheesecloth and seal with mason jar ring of lid.

Turn the jar upside down over a plate to drain. Then refill the jar with water, shake to rinse, and again empty into your sink. I don't bother taking the lid off at all during this process. I simply let the water drain out through the cheesecloth.

Every few hours, you'll want to refill the jar with water, shake around a bit, and then drain. Again, place it upside down in your spot....do this a few times each day until your bean/seed/legume sprouts a tail!

Once they are ready, drain them well & store them in the refrigerator.

Enjoy in salads, on sandwiches or blend into smoothies or homemade burger recipes!

For more information on sprouting, check out the Living-Foods or Primal Seeds websites. So, what do you think? Will you try it?

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a year and a half ago and (Plan to Eat) has been instrumental in keeping our family eating healthy. It is easy and stress free. I love being able to print a grocery list based on what my meal plan is for the week. It is hassle free in a very busy and hassled life!

love, love, love this site. I'm sure I've saved more than my yearly subscription by not wasting food. My husband loves this site too - because he's eating better. LOL. Keep up the fabulous work!

I just spent some time entering recipes and trying out your software and I am in love!! Thank you! I looked for something like this for years, and even bought some software about 10 years ago that was awful. You are an answer to a prayer, freeing up my menu planning time so I can do other things. Thank you so much!
