When I saw Aldi were selling little sprouters for $5, I thought it was high time I delved into the world of sprouting. I think I grew sprouts as a kid with a jar and some cheesecloth, but I’ve never tried sprouting anything else. I wasn’t entirely convinced it was necessary, and it looked a bit too fiddly.
Well I still mostly feel that way, but this sprouter contraption thingy is pretty easy to use! Soak a bunch of lentils in water overnight, pop them in the top of this thing and pour water over them 2-3 times a day. After three days or so, you’ve got crunchy sprouty lentils! And they taste pretty awesome. I remember texting my friend and telling her they weren’t going to even make it to the salad at the rate I was going.
Do you sprout? Do you have a sprouter? Do you prefer cooked lentils? Do you like salads? Who are you? What’s your name? Too many questions…
Anyway, this is my final Meatless Monday link up instalment! I will probably still post from time to time, but you’ll find the new linkup over at Lila’s blog from mid-January. I’m so excited to see it in its new home! I will see you there 🙂
