Fresh greens - GROW YOUR OWN LENTIL SPROUTS

Is it -30 again?!#%? I might go crazy if not for that spot of green growing in my kitchen window. Sprouts are an excellent way to get fresh greens in the dead of a Saskatchewan winter. It takes about 5 days to grow a batch of sprouts. Here's a batch of lentils on Day 1: Soak for a couple hours in a jar of water. These are ordinary brown lentils purchased from the grocery store.


Day 2: Sprouts are rinsed and drained twice a day.

Day 4: nicely sprouted
Day 5: Eat!
