Super Eco-delicious Brown Lentil Sprouts!

Lentil sprouts pack a punch of powerhouse of nutrients that delivers quality nourishment in a ecolicious, convenient form!

Lentil sprouts are so easy to make and are so good for you! Lentil sprouts contain Vitamins: A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, B15, B17, C, K, choline, folic acid, inositol, PABA Minerals: boron, calcium, chlorine, copper, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, sulphur, zinc The amounts are loosely given. I love them over salads, but are good snacks on their own. Cook time is sprouting time.

As a long-term naturalist and natural health enthusiast I've been sprouting on and off for years. My favourite sprouts include: sunflower, buckwheat, mung bean, chia, and now brown lentil(Not too keen on the green thought).

To the brown lentil sprouts I dressed it with:

*Chilli powder

*Fresh garlic

*Pink salt

*Fresh lime juice

*Extra Virgin Olive oil

to this one added a couple of red / yellow / orange bell pepper and serve it with some crisp organic cucumber or any healthy salad!

Sprouting Tip!

Never get the sprouted tails(white)bigger then the lentil itself(once lentils have sprouted ie with white tails refrigerate for freshness.

So quick, so easy and fast-food at it's very best!
