How to Make Sprouts at Home with 18 Soaking Times Guide

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.
