Sprout update

After only a few days the soaked lentils have sprouted into these adorable green shoots!

How easy was that??   ( See garden post from the other day )

I’ve just been using them as a nice Spring decoration but there is no reason why I couldn’t snip them off and pop them in a salad or on a sandwich.

I’m thinking that now I know how easy this is that I can always have a batch on the go!

Try it.  You’ll love it!

    Lovely sprouts. Did you know Mike is “sprouting ” also?

  2. I’ve been curious about trying to do my own sprouts. I thought you needed special equipment or something,… like a big jar… but it looks like you keep it pretty simple. I guess it is that simple?

    • Well there is that kind of sprouting too, but these ones really were THAT simple. Soak the lentils, drain them, put them in a bowl with a paper towel, keep the paper towel moist, watch them grow! We never ate these ones, just kept them for decoration, so I can’t vouch for their taste. Have fun!

  3. Those are so sweet looking.
