Many kinds of seeds and beans can be left in water to germinate. After a few days, their little green shoots are ready for harvest. Sprouted seeds can be added to salads, stir fries, stews, sandwiches and raw savoury cakes.
The following beans are particularly easy to sprout. When sprouted their flavours are fresh, mildly nutty and not overpowering. They look pretty in salads and sandwiches as well as offering a nice crunch.
You can use chick peas for sprouting, and they come up well and taste really excellent. You can even crush the sprouted chick peas with Light Tahini, a little garlic and lemon juice for a quick houmous.
