I have been raw now for almost 1 year, and have always shyed away from sprouting becuase I was afraid it was too difficult (despite all the posts I have read stating otherwise). Well, I am so excited to post that I have completed my first successful batch of sprouted lentils! I wanted to share with other beginners how easy it really is. I used my salad spinner of all things! I first soaked the lentils for 8 hours in the salad spinner, then separated the “strainer” part from the bowl to drain and rinse. I rinsed and drained using the “spinner” 3 times the first day, 2 times the second day. The spinner made it so easy! After I was done spinning, I would place the strainer part on a plate to rest on the counter and get lots of air. Yesterday morning I went to my lentils and they had an amazing 1 cm sprout on them! I used them to make the mock chickun strips recipe from Alison Cohen.
