Updated: Apr 28
Now that we have made all these sprouts, it's time to eat them!
I am constantly experimenting with sprouts to add the into my daily food, and sometime just eating them by themselves as a little snack is the best way possible.
Lentils, blue pea and chickpeas are great in a small bowl to snack on as you work away on a computer or watching tv.
