Quick sprouted beans and rice, great for busy times, easy on the digestion and budget!
Sprouted foods are my latest obsessions! Since I don’t trust myself to carry over the process properly, I loaded up my pantry and fridge with stuff like sprouted beans, quinoa,spelt flour and so much more from the store. I made this sprouted beans rice countless times now!
Why all the fuss about?
sprouted food have less starch, more nutritional value and are easier to digest. They are loaded with B complex vitamins, fiber, and protein. If you are brave enough you can do it yourself. I am not there yet! I am too chicken to catch stuff like salmonella.
Maybe it’s just me… But I feel like sprouted food tastes better especially sprouted flour like spelt. This sprouted beans rice is no different!

A few final thoughts:
When making this sprouted beans rice,
I used brown jasmine of rice for this recipe but any other type rice will work. My beans blend was composed of organic adzuki, lentils, and peas. I believe any of these beans by themselves will work or any other variation you might have on hand.
