Sprouting Seeds Part 2


I have sprouted the following types of seeds:  lentils, chickpeas, a salad spout mix, and a 13 bean soup mix.  Some of the other types of seeds you can sprout are grains, including wheat, barley, rye, popcorn, and quinoa. In the legume category you can sprout lentils, peas, black beans, chickpeas, mung and soy beans.  In the greens category you can sprout the following sprouts: alfalfa, broccoli,, clover, canola, radish, buckwheat and sunflower. 

Some people also spout nuts such as almonds and peanuts.  Soaking these overnight increases the nutritional value tremendously. 

Seed                    Days of sprouting 

Alfalfa                     5-6 days

Lentils                     3-4 days

Mung bean              4-5 days

Sunflower                7-8 days 

When your sprouts are ready to be eaten, place them in a sealed container in the fridge.
If you need some raw food recipes, just google them ;)  J.
