Indian Sprouted Lentil Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sandi From CA

Addictive and extremely healthy! Sometimes you can find sprouted lentils or bean medley in the higher-end markets, but you can sprout your own! TO SPROUT LENTILS: Measure about 6 to 8 tablespoons and soak them in plenty of water to cover overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse, and put them into a wide mouth jar covered with cheesecloth and secured with a rubber band. Lay the jar on its side and cover with a towel. Set aside on the kitchen counter to sprout for the day, rinsing them once or twice and draining them thoroughly. If the weather is cold, they may take a little longer to sprout. Rinse them and leave them until the next morning when you'll notice each lentil has sprouted a little tail. They will now be ready to enjoy. Time estimate does not include sprouting time.

Great recipe...makes for a fabulous, fresh, crunchy salad...I had about 3 cups of lentil sprouts that I wanted to use up and luckily came across this ( :)doing a goggle search...never saw it on Zaar before) Happy Day!!! :) pulled it together by doubling and then some the other ingredients...had everything on hand minus radish -so topped it with alfalfa sprouts instead for that extra "bit-o-bite"(had alot of those too; did a bunch of sprouting and my husband forgot to add them to his sammies - great way to use them before they get the funk)...added some diced garlic and a splash of Braggs aminos for a salty dash...super yummy results...plan to make it a lot during the summer-Thanks Sandi!!!
