Tiny seeds sprouting...
from the dark into the light,
nourish our bodies...

Making your own sprouts helps to ensure their freshness.
Any type of bean or legume can be sprouted. I have a sprouting jar with a mesh
lid, but a regular mason jar with a mesh top fitted into the lid will do.

I used a mix (Azuki, Lentil, Mung, and Radish seeds) in the first two photos and broccoli seeds for the photo below.

Soak 2 tablespoons of your beans/legumes/seeds overnight in 2 cups of water.
Rinse well, drain, and place in a cool, dark place.
Rinse twice a day for four days.

Then... Voilá!
You have a delicious addition to your salads or meals that provide you with
proteins, B vitamins riboflavin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, thiamin
and niacin, and a lot of vitamin C,
as well as minerals ~ copper, iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc.

That's a lot
of life
in a little sprout!
