Yesterday on Facebook my sister called lentil sprouts hateful. I don’t despise them that much, but they are one of the more difficult local box ingredients for me to embrace. I have found three strategies that make them much more tolerable:
1. Steaming the lentil sprouts instead of eating them raw in recipes helps to prevent horrific digestive upset (husband’s primary issue)
2. Combining lentil sprouts with other chopped vegetables & lots of Mediterranean seasonings helps to hide the texture of the sprouts (my primary issue). My favorite preparation so far is a combination of this Fattoush salad–substituting steamed lentil sprouts for the lettuce– and the chopped salad recipe demonstrated by this adorable couple:
3. Watching adorable animals eating lentil sprouts helps get me pumped up for some greens!!
