About a month ago, I watched Atomic Shrimp's video on "bio snacky", that's basically a jar with mesh on it for sprouting beans (Video here: youtu.be/30CIZyAIsFk ) and decided to try myself.

I didn't have any mung beans so I used lentils. It went really well, and pretty much all sprouted. Ate them in a salad, just tasted like bean sprouts.

Before I ate them, I transferred a few to some seeding pots, and they're growing really well.

Not sure what a lentil plant looks like or if they will survive the Dutch climate, but will be fun to find out.

The same day I planted these, I had a salad with sprouting chickpeas in it. Decided to plant one also, but didn't think it would survive the dressing. Doesn't seem to have harmed it through, as it's growing really well.

@george_ My mom will grab anything she finds sprouting and grow it in her garden plot. It's amazing how life seems to grow everywhere!
