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!

We are on an extremely tight budget (think $50 a week for a family of four!), so having a tool that will help me stay within my budget and know exactly what I need is so helpful! Plan to Eat is one of those things that help moms like me continue to stay home with kids despite a rough economy and families to prioritize what's truly important. So thanks again!

I set up my grocery aisles in order...place all the ingredients on their correct aisle. Went shopping last night with my shopping list printed at the click of my mouse.

I just wanted to say that I am so happy that you offer a thirty-day free trial even though the product seems very reasonably priced to begin with. It's just one more thing for a busy mom to remember to cancel a membership that I'm not using so I likely wouldn't have tried this without the free trial option. And I'm so glad I did! I have accidentally turned my children into processed/fast food junkies because we're always so busy that I got into the habit of just grabbing something on the run or, at most, heating something up at home. I have been using plan to eat for almost a month now and my children (unsurprisingly) have not been overly impressed with my efforts at cooking real food and eating at home. But last night, finally, my older son said, "Wow Mom, that was really good. You should make that again!" Music, symphony really, to my ears! Not to mention the stress-reduction of knowing what's for dinner that night and having the ingredients in the house, ready to go, and not spoiled already!!

I've been relying on bookmarks and printed calendars and a separate grocery list and planning meals (when I actually DO it) typically takes several hours per week. This is going to save me so much time! Not only that, but every time I think "I wish it would do this, or I wish I could do that" and I look for the feature, it's there. YOU THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING.
