Takeany edible seeds, nuts, grains or beans, soak them in water overnight and theyshould swell up. Many of them will now be ready to eat without any cooking atall. Letting the sprouts grow longer is optional. Putting the sprouts in awindow so they turn green is also optional. Just soak your seeds, nuts, grainsor beans for 24 hours and then try eating them. If you like the taste then theyare ready to eat.
Ourfavorite is organic mung beans. Just soak them overnight and in the morning theytaste delicious. Once soaked, we think of them as vegetables rather than beans.Mung beans are great in salads or added to a stir fry.
