Set the container in an area that will not receive direct sunlight, indirect light is okay and rinse the seeds twice a day with cool water. To rinse, simply add clean, fresh water for about 10 seconds, and shake and pour out the excess water.

Keep rinsing twice a day and, after a few days, you’ll notice the seeds beginning to sprout. When they begin to grow leaves, pour the sprouts out into a large bowl and rinse with cool water, skimming off the hulls that have risen to the top.

After about a week, the sprouts are ready to be eaten. Store them in the refrigerator and eat within a couple of days for optimal freshness. They’re delicious eaten plain, or you can add them to salads, sandwiches or wraps, stir frys, or omelets.
