Lentil sprout suggestions?

I sprouted my first lentils and they are delicious.

I snacked a few to see what they tasted like, then I put a handful in my smoothie today.

Anyone have suggestions for Lentil sprouts?

i tried to make some lentil/nut pates but they came out horrible. but all my nut pates come out horrible, so i can't blame the sprouts.

i like to toss lentil sprouts with a light curry dressing and just snack away. aren't they fun? and if you grow a bunch of colored lentils together they just look beautiful. also great on spinach salads, etc.

maui_butterfly: What do you mean your lentil sprout pate attempt was "horrible"?

Was it a runny consistency? Or would they not blend?

What kind of lentils are you using?

I know cooked lentils have a difference in texture (red lentils are mushier and don't retain shape like green or brown lentils would).
I don't know if sprouted lentils, depending on the color, would have a difference as well.

Linked here is my idea for lentil soup. I haven't tried it, but the idea is intriguing.

I think sprouts mixed together with lemon is so refreshing. there are recipes I have seen with sprouts, nut butters and sea weed chopped in a food processor. They are good in wraps.

My favorite pate is a Storm and Jinjee one called sunflower pate. It is made with sunflower seed sprouts and herbs. I mix up the ingredients and it always comes out delish. I love it on a nori roll. I don't think you could mess it up.

I've discovered that I really love the french (black)
lentils and I found them very easy to sprout.
