Easy Healthy Guide to Sprouting

I love this salad from Incredibly Delicious: Recipes for a New Paradigm. It’s hearty, but not heavy, and is great on its own or in a wrap!

Sprouted Lentil Salad
serves 4–5

4 cups sprouted lentils
2 carrots, grated
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1–2 Tbsp. olive or cold-pressed oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 dates, pitted, soaked in 1/4 cup water
sea salt or substitute, to taste
3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast

1. In a bowl, combine the sprouted lentils, grated carrots, diced onion and fresh
2. In a blender, blend the remaining ingredients (including date soak water). Pour over
the vegetables and mix. Chill and serve.

I'm amazed... Seems to easy. I already turned into making my own bread, I have to try this, since I just love vegetables and similar... Thank you so much for sharing.

Okay. I have a jar of orange lentils I'm heading to sprout right now! Thanks for poking me to remember to sprout.

This seems very complicated for those of us without a green thumb. I would love it if someone would sell the pre-prepped version (and not just the mung beans) as I would absolutely eat them if I could buy them!

i guess that is why i will never be one of the skinny ones out there in life. i was given a a sprout salad for lunch once. and try as i might i could not get it down my throat. there are certain greens i just did not like the taste of. and another time it had a mold taste to it. i have to go with less sprouts but i am glad there those out there who think it is the great!
