Grow Sprouts From Lentils

I love this idea from re-nest: grow your own sprouts from dried lentils. It looks like it a matter of simply covering the lentils with water and storing in a jar until they sprout. You can use bean sprouts in salads or sandwiches or just eat them on their own.

Apparently, it takes 4-5 days to get your own bean sprouts. According to the site, “you can sprout anything from beans to lentils to garbanzo beans.”
This is a great indoor gardening project, especially if you can’t get bean sprouts in your area during the winter.

Sharing is caring!

  1. I just wanted to make note to heed caution and know what you’re sprouting! Kidney beans are one that you don’t want to sprout – they are toxic and unpleasant when raw.

    Best website ever for sprouting info and supplies.My personal favorite for sprouts is a mix of alfalfa, red clover, mustard and radish…I buy those seeds at the local health food store, though the lentils and mung beans I get at the bulk store.
    It’s so nice to have fresh crunchy sprouts in the middle of the winter! 🙂
