Step 3: Remove and wash the cloth.Wash the sprouts, wrap in newly washed cloth and sprinkle some water on them.Cover lightly and let it sit for 12 hours.
Eating Sprouts Raw or Cooked?
I usually make sprouts and home, so I am fairly confident about them but if you have bought sprouts from outside, I would recommend you always cook them before consuming.
The reason is, that raw sprouts can be harmful, if they have been outside too long.Also raw sprouts are a little too raw for my taste.I like to par boil them before eating.That way the crunch stays but they aren't too hard.
- 1 Cup Sprouts
- 1 Cup Diced Cucumbers
- 1 Cup Diced Red and Yellow Peppers
