Sprouted Adzuki Bean Salad

There is a little bit of work involved here to sprout the adzuki beans which does make them easier to digest or you can use 1 can of Eden Organics Adzuki beans!

DID YOU KNOW ADZUKI BEANS ARE ALKALIZING?

How to Sprout adzuki beans:

Place 1/3 cup dried organic adzuki beans in glass jar and fill to top with filtered water.

Allow to soak for 8-10 hrs (don’t worry if it’s a bit longer as I’ve often forgotten about them for a whole day and they sprout just fine!).

Drain water and put fine plastic mesh over ring of jar so that beans do not fall out but water can still drain.

Flip jar upside down and rinse twice a day.  I usually rinse first thing in morning and before I go to bed.

Beans will sprout in 3-5 days usually.

Serves 6-8
