View Full Version : Quinoa Sprouts
I started sprouting Quinoa last night, soaked it for a couple hours and then have rinsed it three times in the past 16 hours. The sprouts are already starting to show a little green. Have I sprouted them too long before putting them in the refrigerator? I've heard that sprouts are the most nutritious before they turn grow green.

I made some quinoa sprouts for the first time this week. I soaked them in the refrigerator overnight, and then sprouted them (covered with a towel) for only 6 hours (no rinsing). I rinsed them once, after the six hours, and then put them back in the refrigerator. They were fine.
This is what they looked like:

Tim I would just eat them. It can change how they taste but see if you like them.
People are all over the map on sprouting and greens. Some say you have to let them green up to avoid certain toxins, others say no green. I say go by the taste you prefer.

They taste great, especially on top of a fruit salad with a raw chi' nut milk chaser

I am always amazed how fast quinoa sprouts! I soak for 4-6 hrs and sprout, with one rinse, for 6. They have their little tails and go into the fridge. :D

TimS, my quinoa sprouts always look like yours, with lots of green. It seems like I turn my back on them and suddenly they have leaves, LOL :) I eat them and they're fine. As long as they're not spoiled, and taste ok, I think it's up to you how long to sprout them!
Thanks. I can't wait till I get a vitamix so I can blend them in with my smoothies
