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 has totally transformed our evenings! I used to dread the end of the day, wondering what to feed the family. Not only am I more relaxed (I know what I'm cooking), I have the ingredients, we waste less food and spend less money (no more randomly throwing things into my shopping trolley!) and the recipe save feature means I have tried more new recipes in the month I've been using your program than I have in the previous two years! I didn't think I could ever be this excited about cooking...

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!

Your site is AMAZING!!!! I am new to cooking (my husband did the cooking for the first 17 years of our marriage) and looking for ways to eat healthier without killing our budget. THANK YOU for creating such a helpful and easy to use site.

This website makes my life a million times better! It keeps everything organized in one place and is easy to use. I like that it works very quickly on my mobile phone also when I am marking things off my list at the grocery store.
