Sprouted black lentils cook very quickly, keep their shape (think “al dente”) and have a subtle taste that’s excellent at absorbing flavours. They are great in a variety of warm and cold dishes like salads and grain bowls, and hold up well in soups, stews and curries. Try replacing some or all of the meat for a sprouted black lentil bolognese sauce or lasagne.
We source our black lentils in Canada and sprout them to decrease their cook time to 5-10 minutes!

Storage & Shelf Life
After sprouting, we carefully dry the beans back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted beans – in a cool, dry place.
Once you cook your sprouted pulses, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Shelf life: 18 months
