How to Sprout Lentils

Recipe by Sharon123
READY IN: 72hrs 5mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • Place lentils in a quart jar and cover with 2 cups water .
  • Cover the top of the jar with cheesecloth(sometimes I use a clean thin washcloth) and secure with a rubber band.
  • Let sit in water overnight(12 hours).
  • The next day drain off water.
  • Rinse and drain once or twice daily and keep out of sunlight.
  • On the third day (some people wait till the 4th) you will have sprouts with about a 1/4-1/2" tail on them. They are ready!
  • Place in glass jar or plastic jar or bag.
  • They shouldn't be too wet. I use the jar that I used to sprout with.
  • Keep in fridge.
  • Use on salads, as a snack, in stir fries, ground up in spreads. When I'm halfway through the jar I start a new one. Enjoy!
