thank you so much for this idea Sharon! My sprouter was packed to capacity with beautiful green sprouts, now I wish I would have taken a picture. I have never sprouted lentils before, love them! I am in disbeleif of how far 1/2 a cup of lentils can go. I over-cooked these unfortunately so my recommendation would be to really watch they don't turn too brown, even at a low temp they do burn. I'll be reloading my sprouter tomorrow with another batch, I won't use the onion powder next time, I found it just too overwhelming - but the rest of the ingredients are perfect. Thank you again Sharon! Made for Veg*n Swap Mar10.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak 1/2 cup lentils 8 to 12 hours, drain.
  2. Sprout 3-5 days.
  3. Rinse 2 times daily, grow until the length of shoots equals the seed length.
  4. Place sprouts in a bowl and mix in 2 tbs onion powder, 1 teaspoons garlic powder, 2 tbs tamari soy sauce and a pinch of cayenne pepper (if desired).
  5. Spread out thinly on a baking tray, and bake at 250°F until brittle and crispy, which takes about 1 hour.
  6. Alternatively, the snack sprouts can be dried in a food dehydrator.
  7. When the sprouts have dried out, store in a container with a lid, which will keep them dry and crisp. Enjoy!
