Like... lol wowow? If something can sprout its better than raw, its alive! Lots of raw foods can't claim that. Like the tomatoes that were picked 3 weeks ago, kept in storage and are now on shelves waiting to be bought.
Something I'm bout to try with sprouted Lentils and some other sprouts (Kamut, Soft Wheat, Mung) is make Rejuvelac and then use the spent sprouts to make a bread. Last time I did this with just Wheat and Kamut (plus some italian spices and such) it was fantastico!
oh good im glad they're considered raw. it does feel like a bit of a cop out eating grains/lentils though...
but anyway i cant make bread as dont have dehydrator but made this just then and it was super yummy:
Raw Curried Lentil Soup [serves 2]
1 packed cup of sprouted green lentils plus some extra for garnish
3 tablespoons onion, chopped
1 cup filtered water
2 tablespoons dried raw coconut
1 medium zucchini, about 1 1/2 cups chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 for soup and 1/2 for garnish)
2 small cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons sweet curry powder
1/2 cup banana, sliced
1/2 fresh jalapeno
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped for garnish
Kernels from 1 ear of fresh, raw corn for garnish
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 small avocado
1 teaspoon salt (more or less to taste)
Several dashes of cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
Put the dried coconut in 1 cup of water and let rehydrate for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, put the coconut and the water in a high speed blender with the sprouted lentils (remember to save some for the garnish , onion, zucchini, half of the red bell pepper, garlic, curry powder, banana, jalapeno, lime juice, avocado, salt and cayenne pepper. Blend until smooth and place in two bowls. Garnish with extra sprouted lentils, chopped red bell pepper, corn kernels and cilantro and serve.
