One day I spotted a small container of sprouted lentils & peas at the grocery store, from a local small business. So I bought some and tossed a few on my salads over several days til they were used up. Very good addition! Now I do this as part of Breaking the Fast after a 5 or 7 day juice fast. 

Greens Salad with Sprouted Lentils & Peas

This year (2012), I couldn’t find the freshly-sprouted lentils & peas at my grocer, so I sprouted my own. I only used one variety of lentils (brown) and one variety of pea (green). But next time I think I’ll add red lentils and garbanzos to the mix.

See Beans & Other Legumes: Soaking & Sprouting for instructions on sprouting legumes. lentils sprout in about 2 days; peas in 3 – 4. After sprouting, rinse well and store in fridge until ready to use; they will last only a few days.

To make the salad for 1:

  1. Tear up some lettuce or spring greens onto a salad plate.
  2. Add thinly-sliced carrots, radishes, onion, and cucumber (seeds removed).
  3. Add sliced ripe tomato or halved/quartered cherry or grape tomatoes.
  4. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp of sprouted lentil & pea mix over all
  5. Top with a lemon juice & olive oil dressing (1 Tbsp each, seasoned with Unrefined sea salt and freshly ground black pepper).
