Sprouting (How To)
Serves Change 1 servings originally
- 2 tbsp legumes/beans/nuts or seeds
- 2 cups water
- 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!
