My little sprout
For some reason I was so proud of my little short grain brown rice that I sprout. I have had some failed attempts on sprouting beans, fermenting a sourdough starter, and such that I was nervous about this supposedly easy process. The reward was big for me and I was ecstatic to make a pot of brown rice with my freshly sprouted rice to go along with a taco salad.
It was a fun process- one I will let the kids join in on next time (I didn't want to disappoint anyone the first go around). I couldn't tell a difference in the taste- the texture seemed fluffier and softer- but the nutritional benefit outweighed anything else and the fact that I was just tickled pink to achieve these results.
I followed the instructions from sprout people and can't wait to try something else.
