1 large bunch chard

HOW:
Wash chard thoroughly and drain. Chop stalks away from leaves and reserve for another use (add to soup). Chop leaves coarsely. Toast pine nuts in an iron pan until fragrant, about 2 minutes, then salt and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, sauté 1 finely chopped onion in olive oil until soft, then add raisins and 1/4 cup water.

Do it Yourself – How to Sprout

Place in a sprouting bag, or sprouting jar without any water. (Should still be humid, not completely dry.)
3. Every morning and night rinse with fresh water, to keep the sprouts wet and clean of mould.
Ensure the sprouts never dry up, and repeat process until your desired length or age of sprout.
4. Rinse out with fresh water and serve immediately in salads, wraps, smoothies, juices, breads/crackers, or just eat as a snack.
