Inspired by this post at Slow Living Essentials, I thought I'd give sprouting a go. Have you sprouted seeds?
I have just started with mung beans but I hope to move onto other legumes and seeds.
I was really put-off starting when I did my little internet search and saw these little gadgets and blog posts/comments with complicated methods.
But I think I worked out an easy option- well it works at least. I've used one of those glass jars that have the lid attached on a metal hinge, and used the lid to rest the jar on so that it sits at a nice 45 degree angle. I have then closed the opening with a piece of lace fixed in place with a trusty rubber band.
All I did was soak the beans overnight in water, strain and rinse. I don't even remove the lace, I just run the water through the top and up turn to drain. I do it twice a day and they sprout within 2 days usually. Once sprouted it is best to keep in fridge. Some people continue to rinse and strain and keep in the fridge, but I find we eat them too quickly!
Yum on salads, soups and stirfries (even sambos!!)
What do you like to sprout and how do you like to eat them?
