Spring Sprouting

Posted on Updated on


When I returned from my Indian adventure a few weeks back, my roommate had started sprouting. Chick peas, lentils, beans – you name it, she had sprouted it.

I decided to give it a try as well and it is awesome. This is like superfood healthy snack stuff – and it is actually really easy.

Another bonus is that watching anything grow is such a life affirming thing – and what better than spending spring growing stuff.



Dada da da da dada da da da da – yes, it is the food channel jingle.

Today we are sprouting red beans – and let me tell you, you are going to love them.

  • First you soak the beans in plenty of water for a day. Here it is a good rule of thumb to only sprout what you expect to eat in a few days. Better to sprout often than sprout large is what I say – or actually my roommate said that.
  • You now spread out the beans on a plate or something similar and put them somewhere conveniently out-of-the-way.
  • Every day you rinse the beans so they don’t dry out.
  • Within 2-3 days the beans will have sprouted and you can start using them for and in anything imaginable.
