Sprouting is certainly easier than it might seem. It’s actually too easy with the Bio Snacky original seed sprouter.
The toughest part was coming up with a recipe that will allowed me to taste the sprouts without using any over powering ingredient. One problem, my husband took half the sprouts to work to add to his salad. I was left with only half or them to come up with a recipe for dinner.
Keeping with the greens I decided to use the French Green Lentils I purchased over the weekend from the Bulk Barn with my $3 off coupon. I also wanted to keep it light. Looking in the fridge I pulled out a few more ingredients to see what I could create. I remember a while back making French lentils that incorporated toasted almonds so that combination popped into mind.
As I looked online and through my recipe books this afternoon I noted that sprouts can actually be added to any salad or sandwich. There is no need to look for a recipe you can just add the sprouts to any food that you plan on making.
Here is a look at the seeds sprouting over the last 4 days.
I’m happy to finally try sprouting on my own. It did seem complicated at first before reading the instruction however once I got started it was fun to wake up every morning to see how my seeds were sprouting along. In the evening after dinner I would water my sprouts again. This activity was a great learning experiment for me. It is also a great idea to share with kids and get them involved too. I know was looking forward to the taste test and so would a child that participated. Talk about a great way to get the kids eating some health sprouts!
Now the recipe I made with these alfalfa sprouts.

Now that you know how simple it is to sprout seeds, do you think you will try doing it yourself?
