sprouted cooked beans

Um, one time when I was a non-raw vegan, I cooked beans on Sunday to last me all week. I cooked them thoroughly, mind you. After about five days, I took out the plastic container, and, well, what do you know, the beans sprouted. All of them. A mix of black, garbanzo, red, some other ones I don’t remember. Back then, I didn’t know what was happening and thought I shouldn’t eat them (I did anyway).

How in the world do fully cooked, softened, boiled, etc. beans sprout? According to us raw people, shouldn’t they NOT?

    Thats a neat trick indeed. Maybe we arent giving beans enough credit to handle the heat.

  • You’re sure they were sprouting, not molding?? ;)

  • I’ve had plenty of sprouting experience to know that the little tails growing out of the beans were not mold. Plus, I was definitely not sick afterwards.

    That is weird. New one on me…
