The title will either inspire you or make you curl and turn in disgust. If you are the latter, bear with me because not so long ago I felt the same way about sprouts in any shape or form, but a while back I was chatting about them with our playgroup leader who is a wealth of knowledge on the subject and she suggested trying lentils as the flavour is milder than some other sprouts, almost nutty. I felt compelled to give home sprouting a go. Well I was a convert and the whole process is so ridiculously easy, you don’t need a green thumb or even the vaguest idea about gardening you just need something to sprout (in this case puy lentils), a vessel in which to sprout in (glass jar, bowl, tray, plate etc.), some water and a dark place to keep your little babies while they are germinating.
