We've been eating a lot of sprouted legumes around here lately. They are super delicious and we can't seem to get enough of them.
Growing sprouts is simple and easy and saves our family lots of money....
We get more meals and more nutrients out of a bag of beans when we sprout them instead of cooking them. One cup of lentils for example, can easily expand into more than 2 cups of sprouts!
Sprouts are high in digestible protein. They are much easier on my digestive system than the traditional method of soaking overnight and boiling until tender.
Best of all, they give us a taste for homegrown produce which simply cannot be beat. No sprays, no chemicals there! Just clean nutrients to help us thrive.
I've sprouted legumes many times before, but recently, I've learned some new things from thesproutpeople.org. They say the way you can get the best results is to:

Growing Sprouts Is Simple
All you need is:
Some great legumes to start with are mung beans, red/green lentils, and adzuki beans. Mung beans and lentils are really good. I can't speak for the adzuki beans because I've only tried them once a long time ago and cannot remember much about them.
Here's How To Grow Your Sprouts
Lentils are ready after 1 to 3 days.
Mung beans are ready anywhere feom 2 to 6 days (depending on how long you like them).
Adzuki beans are ready after 2 - 4 days.
*A WORD OF CAUTION:* some legumes are not easy to digest even after several days sprouting. Legumes such as black beans and pinto beans come to mind. You must steam or cook those sprouts before you can eat them safely. It's best to always do your own research before you try sprouting something new. Not everything is okay to eat raw.

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Psalm 103:1-3
If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
