I’ve started experimenting with sprouting and started with chickpeas – definitely a huge learning curve! However, after six days of soaking and rinsing (24 hours soaking/5 days rinsing) my chickpeas looked ready to taste! Wow, was I surprised – they had a really pleasant sweet crunchy taste.
Big question – how to eat them? It was cold at lunchtime, so I decided to have soup. I added the sprouted chickpeas to the soup and warmed them through – delicious! I can honestly recommend you try this.
My next batch of beans are already in the jar and are at the rinsing stage – this time it’s mung beans.
