It’s so easy to make your own sprouts! You just have to have a few days patience, but you can make as much as you like, whenever you like. In this way you know exactly what happens to your sprouts (no additives of any kind), they’re full of life force and it’s much cheaper than the ones you buy at a shop, as well that it’s fun to watch them grow!
I’ve used a large jar with kitchen paper and an elastic band as a ‘lid’.
Day 1: Soak the beans for 24 hours in water. Don’t use too much beans, as said, they will get MUCH bigger! After you’ve made them a few times, you’ll know what’s the right amount for you. I suggest to start with just a small layer of beans.
Day 2 & 3: Rinse the beans and keep them 2 days in darkness (I rolled a tea towel around the jar) in a warm place. Rinse the beans once or twice a day.
Day 4: Put the beans out into the (sun)light & warmth.
Day 5: They’re ready to eat!
Tip: Place them somewhere visible in your kitchen, so you don’t forget about them…
Lovely on top of salads, on bread or as a little bite in between. Enjoy!!
