One of the best ways to nurture your body's natural microbiome is to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. That's a mission easily accomplished with these delicious raw bowls, featuring marinated mushrooms, lentils, spinach, beets, carrots and a host of other nutrient-rich ingredients.
*Sprouted Lentils: Rinse ½ cup dry lentils well. Place lentils in a bowl or large jar, and add water until there is at least 1 inch water on top of lentils. Soak lentils for 12 hours. Drain lentils and rinse again. Place rinsed lentils back in bowl or jar. Set lentils in a warm area for 3–4 days, rinsing twice a day. Keep lentils damp but not submerged in water. An option to twice-daily rinsing is to cover lentils with a wet paper towel to keep them damp. Small sprouts should start to show by the third day.
