I purchased my hemp sprouting bag at the festival of life 2008 after see a sprouting demo and being motivated by the sprout with ease bug. I took my new purchase home and stored it safely in a cupboard for a little over a year. Occasionally I would stumble accros it when digging around in the back of said cupboard and say to myself “sprouting, yes I must do that soon…..” And then life would carry on.
Things have changed now that my diet is more raw that not. I have taken up regular [intlink id=”500″ type=”post”]green goodness juices[/intlink], wheatgrass shots and am fully aware that sprouts are important in a healthy [intlink id=”72″ type=”post”]raw vegan di[/intlink]et. No more excuses then.
Step 1: of this suprisingly easy process, is to soak your chosed dried beans overnight in filtered what (12-15hrs). For my first time I chose chickpeas.
Step 2: Rinse beans thoroughly and put into wet sprouting bag. Then wet bag two or three times a day to keep damp.
After a dayor two, as long as the bag has been kept moist, the beans start sprouting.
Step 3: Add sprouts to a salad, stir fry or make raw humus. Easy as 1,2,3……. Why did I wait so long to get sprouting??!!
