Tips

  • To sprout lentils, rinse and soak lentils for 12 hours or overnight. Then leave them inside a sieve covered with a towel for 24 hours. Once it starts sprouting you’ll know they are ready to be cooked. This step is not necessary but it does save time on cooking time and also helps digestion.
