Sprouted Red Lentils
Try these tossed in slaw, stirred into soup, or fried with roasted veg to make fritters.
Rinse lentils in cold water; drain. Repeat 2 more times; transfer to a 1-qt. glass jar and add cold water to cover. Secure a layer of cheesecloth or a paper towel over top with a rubber band. Let sit 12 hours.
Drain lentils, re-cover, and let sit at room temperature, rinsing and draining 1 or 2 times daily, until sprouted, 1–2 days.
Do Ahead: Lentils can be made 5 days ahead. Cover and chill.
