Cooking with sprouts

Lentil + bok choy dish

I sprouted some lentils and realised I didn’t like the raw taste of them much. I figured I had nothing to lose and heated them up a bit (cooked very briefly in my ricecooker). They got a wonderful nutty flavour from the cooking. I added a bit of ketchup, olive oil, salt and pepper and curry powder, which made it really tasty.

On top of that I roasted the bok choy from my balcony — the weird kind that bolted suddenly — with some sesame oil, ginger and garlic.

I mixed it all together and it tasted wonderful!

I ate it all.


Sprouting lentils.

Sprouts . After roughly 24 hours in the bag, the lentil-seeds have started to sprout.

I have never sprouted lentils before, so I don’t know if these sprouted faster. I do like how easy I can rinse the seeds, simply hold the bag under the tap and go — or dip it in a bowl with water. I added the sunflower, broccoli and pea seeds a little later, I hope they’ll sprout tomorrow.

The other bag has some quinoa from my pack. Normally I don’t expect something like that to sprout, they do however sprout. I like it!
