Sprouting (How To)

Serves

Ingredients

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

Directions

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?

Eat healthier food. Save time & Money. Know what‘s for dinner.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

This is the best meal plan I have seen. I always had trouble with creating meals for my family. Then I found out I was allergic to grains. Bless you for doing this for me and all the others out there. Now I can import the recipes I find online, and I will tell all my friends about you. Thank you so much.

Plan to Eat is an AMAZING online meal planning service that we have used for 2 years and just signed up for a 3rd. You can access your friends' recipes for more options.....and meal planning, with a complete shopping list, is a "drag, drop, print" process. This has literally saved me hundreds of dollars by avoiding restaurants and using all the groceries I purchase.

I have a 9 month old girl and a 9 year old boy and have been a stay at home mother for a year now. However, I am now looking for work and realizing how important meal-planning will be when I go back to work, I have tried quite many different meal-planning websites and apps. None is as good as yours and I'm SO pleased I've finally found something which is going to make my life a lot easier. I absolutely refuse to feed my family processed fast/convenience food and insist in cooking proper food from scratch, so your planning is vital. Your website will play a key part in providing us all with a healthy diet. Big, big thank you!

I've tried it all - pre-planned meal plans that others e-mail me the recipes for and the shopping list. These are great, but I don't always love all of the recipes and sometimes they just don't fit into my preferences (or my family's). I love to peruse online recipes along with the many recipe books and magazines. But, it just always seemed so much work to compile them and figure out what I needed on my grocery list - let alone having all kinds of books/mags lying around for one week's meals. Plan to Eat answers all of my dilemmas - it keeps track of my recipes, it lets me import them from websites with VERY minimal proofreading or changing. It lets me drag, drop, tag, click, print, filter...well, it lets me do everything I've ever dreamed of!

Plan to eat makes dinner time manageable! From planning to shopping to executing the meal! I don't forget needed items since everything from my planned menu is automatically added to my shopping list and on busy days I don't have to think about dinner, I simply check my plan to eat and do what it says!
