Sprouting your grains may make them easier to digest and increase their nutritional benefits.Whole Living, July/August 2011 http://www.marthastewart.com/133479/sprouted-summer-salad
To sprout your own quinoa, place 1/4 cup quinoa in a mason jar and cover top with cheesecloth. Secure with metal ring or rubber bands. Fill jar with water and let quinoa soak overnight. Drain. Rinse quinoa with water and drain twice a day for up to 2 days, until roots are about 1/2-inch long. (Quinoa should not dry out completely.) Once sprouted, rinse thoroughly and use immediately or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Makes 1/2 cup sprouted quinoa.
