    Hey Ellie, great video lesson at WNYT. I hadn’t ever thought about sprouting lentils so I’m going to try it soon. I think we have all those same foods in season here in Southern Ontario too so I should be able to make a salpicao any day now.

      Thank you John! Traditionally people use peas, but I just love sprouted lentils. We even have some early apples at the market, which makes it so yummy, but you could use pears… the leftovers makes great sandwiches; I guess you can tell how much I love this salad 🙂 Happy sprouting!
