Foodie Friday

Guess what's sprouting at our house?????

We love sprouts. It's like gardening for dummies. Easy peasey....except I did actually flunk sprout class the entire time we lived in Honduras. Something about the mugginess - my sprouts molded before they were ready every. time. I. tried.. So I quit trying for a season. There's a moral to a story for ya....and it's not 'try, try again.' It's more along the lines of 'we're not in Kansas anymore, so stop trying to build a tornado cellar'.

Now I've dug out the sprouter a friend gave me years ago and am at it again. The pics above are the lentils that we sprouted. We *LOVE* sprouted lentils. My kids ate one entire tray as I was trying to locate the camera to take the pictures for the blog!

Caught YOU!!

She doesn't look scared does she?

Yes, I think we like them.

I'll do black bean sprouts next and then when I get some garbanzos.......mmmmmmm.....

You forgot the how to part. Do you just put them in water? Do you need a special dish?

But most importantly -- why would a person want to sprout a perfectly good garbanzo bean??

Details, Faith, I'm needing details!
