Soak 1/3 to 1 cup of beans in cool water for 8-12 hours.

Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.

Rinse thoroughly.

Drain Thoroughly.

Rinse and Drain with cool water every 8-12 hours.

Bean Sprouts don't need light. Keep your Sprouter in a low light location.

Harvest on day 2 or 3, when most of the beans have short roots. Refrigerate your crop.

Yields approximately 1 Cup (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts

Seed Prep Measure out 1/2 Cup of seed* Rinse your seeds to remove dust or plant debris.

Soak Transfer your seeds - if necessary - into your Sprouter, or a bowl. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60-70 degree) water. Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all. Allow seeds to Soak for 8-12 hours.

Sprouting Empty the seeds into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. You can use it - it has nutrients in it.

Rinse thoroughly with cool (60-70°) water. Drain thoroughly.

Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. This is where your sprouts do their growing. We use a counter top - in the corner of our kitchen, but where the sprouter won't get knocked over by cats, dogs, kids or us. We don't mind the indirect sunlight or the 150 watts of incandescent light, because light just does not matter much. Your Bean Sprouts will never have leaves, and a plant can only perform photosynthesis when it has leaves. Until then light has little if any effect, so don't hide your sprouts. Plus, they like air-circulation.

Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours. And, once more... Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours. And, perhaps once more... Rinse and Drain in 8-12 hours.

We stop no later than here. We like our sprouts small. Typically, we sprout for just 2-4 Rinse and Drain cycles. At that point most of the seeds will have sprouted tiny (1/16 - 1/4 inch) roots. That's the way we like our Bean Sprouts.

Depending on your climate and the time of year you are sprouting and most importantly your personal preference - You may Rinse and Drain again at 8-12 hour intervals for up to 6 days. We Do Not recommend doing so, unless you're doing a science experiment. Grow them for as long as you like. As long as you continue to Rinse and Drain every 8-12 hours. If you grow for a week you'll get some plants growing as well as roots. Experiment! Have Fun! It's All Good - if occasionally inedible @;-D

As always, we suggest that you taste your crop at EVERY Rinse - including the very first - just after the Soak period. The soaked seeds are already alive and super nutritious - and - they are without enzyme inhibitors (a very good thing indeed!) so they'll digest themselves and nourish you. So taste them often and find out for yourself when they are most delicious! That's when they're done.

Harvest Your sprouts are done 8-12 hours after your final Rinse. Be sure to Drain them as thoroughly as possible after that final Rinse. The goal during the final 8-12 hours is to minimize the surface moisture of your sprouts - they will store best in your refrigerator if they are dry to the touch.

Refrigerate Transfer your sprout crop to a plastic bag or the sealed container of your choice and put them in your refrigerator. We offer Produce Storage Bags that will extend shelf life substantially.

*Seed to Use

* If using Sproutpeople's Single Harvest Pack - use the whole bag. It will produce a crop of approximately 8 ounces.

These seeds yield approximately 2:1 - so in theory you can start with up to as 1/2 as much dry seed as your Sprouter has capacity. If you are new to sprouting, or new to this crop; we advise that you start with 1/4 - 1/3 of your Sprouter's capacity so that your sprouts have more room.

Beanie's Awesome awaits the great Soak.

Remember to taste them at every opportunity, to learn when you like them best. Harvest now if you've not yet done so.

Another view. My how they grow!

A remarkably beautiful pastel bean mix where the greens, yellows and oranges are set off by the addition of deep red Adzuki beans. Beanie's Awesome Mix is our original bean combo and was originally called Jupiter's Awesome Mix - after our (first) beloved dog, who is responsible for our move "back to the land" and subsequently the rest of our lives. Jupie loved beans of all kinds. Awesome Mix is a wonderful snack and lends itself readily to many recipes. It also inspires me to poetry.....

jupie is a dog, her name is dog, she goes bow wow just like a dog.

Jupiter. My dog. her nickname was Beanie. She couldn'ta been sweeter though her brain it was teeny. She loved me above ev-ery-thing in this world. I'll love Her forever! She was my awesome girl.

If there is anything unique about our current seed, we will tell you about it here. Seed Shelf Life: 5 years. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.

Not all of these seeds will sprout in the same period of time. They are close enough to mix together though, so we did. You Don't have to wait for all of them to actually pop a root. Something We Need You to Know: Once a seed has soaked up its fill of water, it is alive, and now super-nutritious - and - they now have no enzyme inhibitors (a very good thing indeed) so they'll digest themselves and nourish you. Growing a root/sprout is a matter of preference only - it is already a nutritional dynamo.

I bought this mix to try bean sprouting for the first time. I followed the guidelines for sprouting and the bean sprouts were so yummy! I served them over quinoa with some olive oil - so good! I'm sold!

I am in love with this sprout. I made fried rice with them and added them to salads.

I had a bit of eureka moment with these. I was disliking all the various bean sprouts I was buying. Then I read (and re-read then re-read) Gil’s urging to TRY the sprouts at every rinse. Then I realized that I actually don’t like bean sprouts with tails—now I simply harvest my many bean sprouts after the first soak (give them 8 hours to dry)...and I LOVE bean sprouts now. It was a profound moment since I’m a plant-based eater who scrambles for nourishing forms of protein and iron. Thanks, Gil! You only say it a million times on your detailed instructions and I finally followed suit.

Munch these as a very nutritious snack!!
Or in bowl with sweetener and mik=delicious cereal
So good/hardly any calories!!

I've had these raw in salad and they are good. However, if you boil these for an hour after a few days of sprouting then saute them - holy cow - amazing! You saute them in a little olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic they are soooooo good!!

We made Gil's Sprout Fried Rice tonight with Beanie's Awesome Mix and it was...Awesome! Beautiful and delicious


My GD has grown up with her Nana's sprouts on the counter but I never even tried to talk her into trying my sprout burgers cause I figured she'd balk. One day she dropped by and I was frying some spout burgers and they smelled awesome as usual and she asked if she could taste it. She tasted 2 whole burgers and now asks me to make them up for her. I freeze the patties I make and then just "fry" them in a cast iron skillet (with olive or coconut oli). They also make wonderful "sprout balls" and she ate a whole pound of them and tried dipping them into gyoza sauce, catsup, and sweet and sour. Amazingly they are good as cold left overs. You know when a pre teen ask you for sprout burgers/balls that they must be pretty good to her.

Really delicious any way I've prepared it though it is prettier raw. I love the bright pastels and the story of this one too. Cheers!

I like the crunch and the flavor of the awesome mix more than any bean except maybe the san fran mix which has peanuts. This one is really pretty too.
