How To Grow Green Lentil Sprouts: Fill your sprouting jar up with 3 to 6 tablespoons of Green Lentil seed, depending on jar size. Green Lentil seed will yield you roughly 2 times the weight of the seeds you put in the jar in sprouts. This is dependant on how long you grow them for.

Fill the jar with water and let the seeds soak in it for 6 to 12 hours. Then drain the water and rinse the seeds. Leave the sprouting jar turned upside down to drain all excess water.

Daily Rinsing: Open your jar twice daily and rinse your seeds/sprouts thoroughly, filling the jar with water and draining it 2 to 3 times for each rinsing. Then leave the sprouting jar turned upside down to drain any excess water.

Placement: Place your sprouting jar in an area that does not get direct sunlight. Lentils sprouts do not need sunlight.

Harvesting: Green Lentil Sprouts can be ready to eat after as little as 4 days, but you can grow them longer. It is best to taste them after each day and see what your preference is, and take note for future growing. When you are happy with them, rinse them once more, remove from your jar, and store them in the refrigerator.
