Sprouted Salad

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Sunday, September 28, 2008 | 12:56 PM

Sprouted salad that is very crunchy and spicy can be converted into anything. A few that I can think of right now is to add it inside a pita pocket with some hummus, flat bread roll up by spreading some garlic sauce on flat bread and using this salad for topping or in bhel puri. This salad has become very popular in my household ever since my sister got me this cool sprout making box from India. It is so simple and mess free. Has 2 compartments where you can add a bed of soaked bean, grain etc and allow it to sit over night. The excess water drips to the lower part and perfect sprouts are formed. My entry for My legume Love Affair event hosted by nourish me but created by Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook.
