Hi! It was my first time sprouting, and I thought I'd failed, but this afternoon i took a look at the bowl and voila--sprouts. Here's what I did: rinsed regular old organic quinoa. Put in a bowl near the window where there was some air flow. Every 4-6 hours, i re-rinsed the quinoa and then put it back by the window. This morning, I looked and there were no sprouts, so i thought I'd have to chuck them, but didn't have time so just left them out. This afternoon (8 hours after last checking them) I took a peek and voila, sprouts!! And they're perfect, crunchy and delicious. I rinsed them once again, and added the rest of the ingredients. Done! Hope you enjoy--post and let me know if it works out for you!

can you tell me how you sprouted the quinoa--novice here. This salad looks like my ideal for what I would like to have as a staple in my diet. My main question is was this store-bought quinoa, or a special "raw" kind?

In Raw Food Real World, they tell how to sprout Quinoa the easiest... Soak for about 4 hours, then put them in a colander (one with smaller holes ;) and cover with a dish towel. I think they said to let it sit for about 10 hours. I did this and they actually sprouted! I was shocked! I had bought a sprout garden and everything actually molded over from too much water! This method is so much easier!!! Good luck! This recipe looks great! I think i'll use up the rest of my quinoa this weekend! Thanks!

Oh, and I just started this last night, so the whole process took less than 18 hours to get the sprouts.
