i was wondering if anyone knew anything about soaked raw fenugreek seeds and its benifits? oh yeah and also if its actually a seed or a bean/
Yep they are seeds. I got some years ago and found them to be very pungent when sprouted. If you do sprout them you need to sprout them with milder sprouts to cut down their sharp flavor. Ann Wigmore says that they are good for cleansing the blood and kidneys and they are high in iron and phosphorus. I'm not positive but seems like I remember that they are slimy like flax when soaked.

wow you can sprout them!!!! excellent, i wrote another post somewhere as i usually drink them as tea when i need to boost my milk supply, if the girls are sick or something. I'm off to sprout some now :D
Here are the sprouting instuctions from my book;
Soak seeds 8 hours
1/2 cup dry measure per 1/2 gallon sprouting jar
1/2" to 1" length at harvest
ready in 3 to 5 days
pungent flavour - mix with other seeds
can be used in casseroles, dips, dressings, salads, soups, and sprout loaves.

Wow cool that sounds really good. I wish I knew where to get some fenugreek seeds though lol. I have been curious about mustard seeds too. Are those beneficial? Can you sprout them? I assume traditional mustard bought at the store isn't raw but I have really been craving mustard lately and want to get that mustard flavor somehow.
Soak 4-6 hours
1/2 cup dry measure per 1/2 gallon jar
Length at harvest 1"
Ready in 4-5 days
Hot flavor, mix with other seeds
used in juices, salads, sandwiches, soups
contains - mustard oil, vitamins A&C, minerals
