Sprouts are quick ,easy and pleasantly healthy .They add extra nutrition to your salad/wraps/snacks.
Sprouts are one of the most easily available and cheap vegetables that each of us can easily grow.

All you need is legumes,grains beans and dampness not a green thumb and sunlight. I have been growing my own variety of sprouts for years now. Do you remember science projects from school days involving sprouting with few beans and result would be something live and green. Lets talk about the benefits now

It increases vitamin B,C and the fiber content
Boast metabolism
Sprouting is less allergic to those with sensitivity/trouble digesting legumes/beans
Decrease the presence of anti nutrients

Successful Sprouting

Soak overnight legumes and beans (8-12) hours


Here I have used 1 cup of  whole Green Mong from my pantry following the rule 3:1 (three parts of water  and one part of mong ) Rinse and drain the next morning. Cover it with wet dripping paper towel. Keep it inside the cabinet or in a closed oven. Sprouts will be ready in a day or two.


Now your best indoor food that can be consumed raw is ready to eat and store in the refrigerator for 2-4 days,Would you look at these…………………….. 🙂

Sprouts in a Jar

Once you have soaked  these over night  drain and place them in mason jar cover them with cheese cloth and a rubber band.Leave them on your kitchen counter or inside the cabinet. Baby sprouts  germinate in a day. It depends what you prefer for  longer sprouts repeat rinsing them with water every day and invert them upside down for a while till the water drips.

Enjoy sprouting as a fun learning project with your kids!

  3. I am probably going to ask the question on everyone’s mind here.. Why sprout? When we can just consume the lentils/chickpeas/beans directly. I mean it’s an extra step to sprout unless it has more value after the sprout…? Can you clarify please?

    1. The process of germinating enables the outer layer to open allowing a young sprouted shoot to come out.This extracts all the goodness making them easier to digest (enhance absorption of nutrients) while boosting the nutrition profile.By sprouting legumes and lentils we are not only enhancing the protein content but also increasing the level of minerals and vitamins.Remember by growing something we are further increasing the antioxidants,boosting blood supply,creating a biotin rich food.So make a batch of heart healthy sprouts reduce your cooking time,consume them without worrying about the weight as they are low in calories.Hope they turn out to be your best food friends 🙂
