Lentil Sabzeh

Lentil Sabzeh

Last year I posted how to grow Sabzeh, Norouz Sprouts, with unpelted wheat. This year I am posting how to do the same with lentils! The process is pretty much the same! I love the fact that we have options as far as what kind of sprouts to grow!

Soak lentils for 2 or 3 days. Change water daily. (Picture taken February 24)

Place lentils in your preferred dish.  By this time little while sprouts are visible on each lentil. (Picture taken February 27)

Cover the lentils with a moist towel or paper towel. Sprinkle with water every day. During the first couple of days I just run the paper towel under water and then gently squeeze out the excess water then place it back on the lentils. Once the sprouts grow to about half an inch remove the paper towel. Continue sprinkling the lentils every day with a bit of water. Make sure that there isn’t too much water at the bottom of the dish.
