Sprouting breaks down the protective coating on lentils to help unlock the nutrients inside, by soaking the lentils in water to encourage them to grow. Lentils are yellow, red-orange, green, brown or black lens-shaped seeds from a type of ancient legume, meaning that they have changed very little from the domesticated varieties eaten by ancient civilizations.
