Recipe Directions

1. If you have a large jar, put all the buckwheat into one jar. If it fills it more than half way you may want to split it into 2 jars because it is going to expand. You can also use a sprouter.

2. Cover with water and shake around a little

3. Put thin towel or stocking over top of jar and secure with a rubber band. This will allow you to rinse the sprouts easily. See picture.

4. Soak for 4 hours

5. Drain water out, rinse, and lay jar on side in dark place. I put mine in the cabinet.

6. Rinse and drain 2 times/day for 2 days (until they sprout little tails)

7. Dehydrate or use them for anything, bread, crackers, cookies, on a salad, sandwich, pizza, etc.

8. If you dehydrate them you can sprinkle them on raw yogurt or ice cream or salads, etc.

I found this page that lists soaking and sprouting times for other seeds/legumes.

smoothilove, you could probably make the granola with the quinoa or any other sprouted grain. Let me know how it comes out if you try it.

topcat, I have been thinking about that too. My friend and I were talking about growing our own grains today while we were at our community garden. Think I'm going to try it. Let me know how it works out for you.

I sprout but lately I found something new to do with groats. I soad them for 8 hours and then rinse and put them in soil to grow my own wheat or barley grass. then I put in blender with some water and strain. then i put in lemon juice and sweetener.

Chris S. and justbeautiful, Yes, of course. Sprouts are very versatile. I put them on sandwiches, pizzas, salads, etc. If you do dehydrate them you can then put them in a food processor and process to a powder consistency and use as a sweetener. This works especially well with sprouted wheat. The website I put at the end of this recipe is a very helpful page on sprouting.

Justbeautiful: Yes, different seeds take different soaking/sprouting times but usually the same method. The website has a list of many seeds with their respective soaking/sprouting times.

Oh, nevermind my comment. I know the answer now. I can use the same method with other sprouting seeds, but with different times, is that right?
