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?

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

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

(Plan to Eat) works with ANY dietary plan (we're Paleo), food allergies (we're dairy lite and tree nut free, along with no food dyes or preservatives) and I don't have someone else telling me "You should cook THIS this week"...blech. Plus, with only two of us it's easy to adjust for how WE cook and eat! To me, this site is great for those who enjoy cooking.

I have tried other plans before and they just didn't make my life easier. Plan to Eat, on the other hand really does make menu planning much easier! It is very intuitive. It is easy to transfer recipes. The way that the shopping list can be changed by dates is truly amazing. I'm able to easily change serving sizes. There is just so much to love!
