Chickpea after the 3rd 10 minute morning soak and 8 hours later definitely ready to eat I would not let them go any longer than this, see later slides. Click to hide.

Chickpea after overnight soak in probiotic nutrients, at this stage I would begin to separate the damaged seeds that aren't going to germinate, we supply an optional tool with our sprouting kits(perspex pliers), to make this easier or you might already have some fine long nose pliers available.

Chickpea soaking in probiotic nutrients, this is done overnight or during the day to begin the cycle and then once a day for 10 – 30 minutes. The reason you bother to do this is basically to make a superfood more super as the peas absorb all the extra micronutrients and trace elements and then deliver them to you in the most bioavailable way.

Because sprouted chickpeas are best eaten in the 1st few days of growth, you may wish to prolong your opportunity to eat them by storing them. So firstly, a day after the overnight soak remove the damaged seeds as previously mentioned, and then wrap them in a tea towel and pat them down after 6 to 8 hours removing most of the surface moisture then put them in a container lined with paper towel or cloth. You can see this in the bottom part of the picture where they are stored as suggested above and then after 4 days they have grown in the fridge but this would have happened in 2 days outside the fridge. Another method is to hang them in a cool dry place inside a mesh bag to promote the surface drying process before storage. Click to hide.
Here we see them added to a wrap, 1st picture is with guacamole and small grape tomatoes then adding some loose sprouts and then finally some Microgreen cuttings, I like hot so I also add Tabasco chili sauce (no sugar). Click to hide.
This is how I make hummus using sprouted chickpea. Again soak overnight with your probiotic nutrients rinse thoroughly maybe leave for 12 hours, then I mix the lemon juice with the tahini, add 10 mil of soya sauce instead of salt. Slowly add the chickpea and using your blender (a handheld blender will be fine if you are only doing small amounts) when the paste starts to form add about 30 mills of oil e.g. olive flaxseed. Now being alive, this product is not going to last very long so you need to eat it in the next couple of days if you want it to last slightly longer then cook the chickpeas for a few minutes in boiling water and add some colloidal silver to the mix.

Sprouting kit 2 small sprouting colanders with covers plus one large 4L colander with cover along with 250ml of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for those people that eat a lot of sprouts as you can wait until the 2 small ones are full or three quarters full and then add them to the large one which you store in the fridge, after a few more days of cleaning and rinsing, and then start the process again in the small ones while eating from the large one, again so you have a constant supply.

Sprouting kit 1 large colander with cover + Storage options(2 x cotton bags, 2 x mesh bags, plastic bag clip ) for the early stage of sprouting (instead of the small colanders) +250 ml of bio-activated nutrients for sprouting with seed selection. So the idea with this kit is you use 1 of the mesh bags to grow your sprouts for the 1st say 4 days, you then empty them into the large colander for the final stages of cleaning (removal of husk) and greening. When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag. You can then start sprouting again in your other mesh bag or if you have another spare colander you can begin this process earlier. This saves you the cost of extra small colanders with covers but not quite as convenient in my opinion. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.
Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using one large 4 L colander +2 KG of pebbles to weigh the sprouts +1 KG of Mung bean and bio-activated super organic nutrients.
Growing the mung bean in the long white format. This can be done by putting it in a space that restricts its growth or similarly, as we have done here, placing a weight on top of the sprouts, along with the tea towel this serves the purpose of also keeping the light out i.e. so the leaf development is restricted.
We give you the option of purchasing this kit with or without the cover, if you are just doing mung beans then you do not need the cover, however if you want to use it to do normal sprouts then you can sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for say 3 – 4 days, and then empty them into the large colander and proceed with the sprouting process from there, in this case you will need the cover.
We also supply you with our sprouts/vegetable storage system this allows you to store your sprouts in the fridge for well over a week. . Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.
