Lentil Sprouts


What are they?
Sprouted versions of the staple vegetarian protein with a nutty taste and a crunchy texture. Best for salads, not juicing.
NB: You can’t just go to the supermarket and buy any old lentils – you need those which have been specifically grown for sprouting, or you will get a poor yield, or no yield at all.

What’s in them?
In a 77g cup:

  • 75% carbohydrate
  • 21% protein
  • 4% fat
  • High in Omega 3 and Omega 6
  • Minerals/RDA (most significant):
  • Manganese 19%
  • Copper 14%
  • Iron 14%
  • Phosphorus 13%
  • Zinc 8%
  • Vitamins/RDA (most significant):
  • Vitamin C 21%
  • Folate 19%
  • Thiamin 12%


  • Energy
  • Protein
  • Lowers low density lipids (LDL) cholesterol
  • Regulates insulin
  • Fights breast and colon cancer

Who should eat them?
Everyone – no excuses.

Why I love them
Because they’re crunchy and nutty and go with every salad on the planet. Just be careful that you don’t let the sprout itself get longer than the lentil, or they can taste bitter.

This section has taken a great deal of time to compile. Why? Because it had to be right, only guiding you towards products I use myself on a regular basis, or, if it’s irrelevant to me, trusting the word of someone else I know who rates it highly, who has had cause to use the product themselves.

Wherever possible, the products will be organic – always my own personal first choice. If they are not, it’s more than likely that it is unofficially organic – not doused in harmful chemicals and sourced from a small producer who cannot afford the exorbitant costs it can mean to certify a product as organic.

And, wherever relevant, all products are vegan and cruelty-free. (You can’t get a vegan water pick, for example. I did try).

I will NEVER knowingly break these promises. But if you find out that any of the products listed in this section fall below par for whatever reason, please contact me.

And, for your information, some products featured are part of the agreement I have with Amazon Associates. This is an affiliate advertising program, which means that if you buy a product linked to one of my blog posts and decide to buy something from Amazon as a result, I’ll earn a SMALL percentage of the purchase price WITHOUT it costing you anything extra. If you’d prefer not to support It Shouldn’t Happen to a Vegan in this way, you can always search for any products mentioned on Google, rather than buying through my link.

But let it be said that I will NEVER provide links to products purely for reasons of profit. It will be because either I use the product myself, or I know someone personally who has benefitted from it.

Never miss a post!
