Learn How Sprouting Quinoa is Easy
Sprouting quinoa is simple and fast, you make a healthy grain even healthier for your body. This is especially great for the summer when it is so hot you do not want to be cooking and heating up the house. We make sure you do it just right in our Summer 2-5-30 Diet and Detox.
This gluten-free, protein-rich grain becomes even more nutritious and digestible.
It is alkaline-forming and we recommend it highly for a balanced body.
Sprouts of course can be eaten raw in your salads.
Sprouting Quinoa Recipe
- Rinse the quinoa thoroughly.
- Put the quinoa into a jar and fill the jar to the top with filtered water.
- Soak the quinoa for 6 hours or overnight maybe easier.
- Set the jar in shade at room temp (70 degrees)
- Pour off the water, use a strainer as well.
- Rinse the quinoa with more water.
- Thoroughly drain the water from it and set the jar with either the lid or mesh upside down in a container to catch excess dripping water.
- Every 4 – 7 hours, rinse them with water, pour out the water, and then put the jar upside down over a bowl. Although the time does not have to be exact, make sure it is not sitting for too long before being rinsed.
- Sprouting quinoa will take about 1-2 days. Little thin sprouts will come out of the grains.
- Store the quinoa sprouts in a glass jar in the fridge; eat the quinoa sprouts within a few days.
This makes approximately 2 cups of sprouted quinoa
Note: Small sprouts last longer. Enjoy
