Can I sprout blck-eyes peas? If so, can I sprout the ones on the shelf in the grocery store, or would I need to get them in some other form?
I have a great recipe for back-eyed pea paste (would be great with veggies on nori rolls) and all other ingredients are raw, except that it calls for cooked black-eyed peas...

OK, you just gave me an idea... to work up a recipe for southern style raw Hip Hopping John. I'll get back to you on that later. :)
In any case, most beans are good to sprout, although stopping at the "Tiny Tails" stage is best for a lot of them. Once they get leaves they mostly aren't so tasty.
But red kidney beans are a big no-no for most people. They have a particular enzyme in them that makes many people sick. For the world at large it doesn't show up as a problem because the kidney bean toxin is deactivated by cookin.
And castor beans??? Oh, please, don't even think about it. :eek:
