The Health Benefits Of Sprouting Lentils

Sprouting lentils, grains and seeds at home is very easy. Lentils contain protein, fiber and many vitamins, and they are an important source of protein for vegetarians and vegans.

You can buy special sprouting jars that are a great investment if you are going to start making your own sprouts, but you can also use a normal clean glass jar and a piece of thin cloth.
