My friend Zoë very kindly gave me a bunch of lentils that she had sprouted. It was so sweet of her and it let me try a raw lentil recipe without all the hard work of sprouting them first. This recipe is a little like a lime salsa lentil salad. I just threw this together so don’t even ask me about proportions.
– 2 cups sprouted lentils
– Juice of 1 lime
– White onion
– Olive oil, sea salt, black pepper and kelp flakes to taste
Chop the tomatoes, cilantro, and onion. Mix with the lentils. Press the garlic and juice the lime. Mix everything together and add other ingredients to taste.
I give this a 3/5 happy monkeys. It was really tasty and a had a refreshing lime flavor, but the sprouted lentils were a little too heavy for me. I’m so used to eating mostly vegetables now that eating legumes felt a bit much.
