Growing lentil sprouts is a great way to increase the nutritional benefits and digestibility of this healthy legume. Learn how to sprout lentils at home easily and affordably.
All you need to start sprouting lentils are the lentils themselves, a 32 oz. mason jar and a sprouting lid or cheesecloth. You want to make sure the lentils have enough room to expand in the jar, so if you want to double the recipe, use 2 jars instead of adding more lentils to the same jar.
Start by adding 1/2 cup of lentils to the mason jar and rinse them with water, removing any stones. You can rinse them by putting in water then putting the sprouting lid on the jar and draining the water out through the lid.
