Why sprout beans? They're said to have better digestive qualities, increase protein, essential fatty acids and vitamins and minerals. It turns something good for you into something better. I admit to being a smidge granola, so this seemed like a fun little science experiment, while also boosting the good stuff in a food I eat so frequently.
The process was just too long. The pintos smell like they are fermenting and I found that totally unappealing. Two days of waiting for beans to be ready is really too long for me. And to make matters worse? I put the lid on my dutch oven during cooking and didn't leave an air vent... went upstairs to read books with B and my entire stove was covered in yucky bean water. I was definitely over it at this point.
Anyone else ever sprouted beans? What was your experience? Where did I go wrong?
