Always use raw dried whole nuts, seeds and grains - i.e unroasted buckwheat, unroasted almonds, dried corn, chickpeas and lentils.
Prep Time2 hrs
Total Time2 hrs
Servings: 1 cup
- 1/2 cup nuts, seeds, grains or legumes (soaking guide below)
- cold filtered water
Place a desired amount of nuts, seeds, grains on legumes in a clean glass bowl, jug or jar and cover with enough filtered water to come up about 2 inches above. Soak for the required time - see table below. Drain using a sieve then rinse with filtered water.
If sprouting, leave the food inside the sieve and leave at room temperature for the required time (see table below) to sprout. Dip in filtered water for a couple of minutes every few hours to "water" the sprouts.
Once sprouted to about half a cm long, transfer sprouts to an airtight container and store in the fridge for 2-5 days.
