Sprouted Pulses

Bean and other pulse sprouts make a crisp and nutritious addition to salads and stir-fries, providing useful amounts of B vitamins, especially folate, and vitamin C.

The bean sprouts you are most likely to find in the shops are from mung and aduki beans, but many other pulses can be sprouted successfully. Whole green and brown lentils and chickpeas are particularly good.You can buy special layered sprouting containers, which are useful if you want to sprout different varieties at the same time.


Here's how to do it the simple way.:

  • Rinse the pulses, then place in a large jar (a kilner-type jar is ideal).

  • Fill the jar with water, then cover with a piece of muslin secured with an elastic band.

  • Leave to soak in a warm place overnight.

  • The next day, pour off the water through the muslin, then refill the jar with water through the muslin.

  • Shake gently, then drain off the water and leave the jar on its side (top right), away from direct sunlight.

  • Twice a day, rinse the pulses well with water and drain.

  • After a few days they will begin to sprout (middle right).

  • When the shoots are 12 cm ( in) long, place the jar in a sunny but not too hot place.

  • Leave for a few more days, still rinsing regularly, until they have grown to the desired size (bottom right).

  • Rinse well and remove any ungerminated beans before using.

  • The sprouts can be kept in a plastic bag in the fridge for 12 days.

  • Eat the sprouts as fresh as possible and before their seed leaves form
