How to grow lentil sprouts at home, Procedure:

Before you get started:

Clean the lentils for any mud or stones and wash them thoroughly, then soak them overnight.

Day 1:

Drain the water and transfer the lentils to an airy base container. Choose a sift or a colander because without proper drainage sprouts will spoil. Cover the container with a cheesecloth and keep it in a dark area. From now you need to keep the lentils moist either by spraying or rinsing them every 8 hours.

Day 2:

By the end of the day, 2 little shoots start coming out of the lentils. You can start to consume at this stage or let them grow for few more days.

Day 3:

The lentils would grow even much more on day 3. You need to keep the moisture by either spraying or by rinsing them. Each day passes they would grow more beautifully to a lentil bouquet. It is up to you whether you start harvesting them for your salads or wait till they reach your desired stage. I let them grow for five days.

Day 4:

On day 4 you will see a change in the length of the sprouts.

Day 5:

If you have not harvested any of your sprouts till day 5 you will get a beautiful bouquet of healthy and nutritious homegrown lentil sprouts. You can either stir fry them or blanch them before adding them to your salads.


All types of lentil sprout growing share the same procedure.
