Q & A

I'm soaking my nuts right now I forgot how you said to cook them, is it at very low temperature and how long?

Thanks for your help i appreciate it.


Hey Sandy,

Great question. Soak them for at least 8-12 hours in water with a teaspoon or more of sea salt, preferably sea salt not normal table salt. Then strain and rinse them thoroughly. Place them on a big cookie sheet with them spread out. Place in the oven at about 150-200 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8-10 hours or until they are crispy but not burnt or starting to have a burnt taste.

Ideally, this should be done with all nuts, seeds and legumes and beans except flaxseed which doesn't soak very well. Most seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, etc) will sprout quite nicely thus making them easier to digest and increase the nutrient profile. To sprout, perform same process as above however before putting them in the oven, continue rinsing them periodically throughout the day (2-3 times) until sprouts are visable. Depending on the seed, it may take 2-3 days to sprout. Afterwards, place them on a cookie sheet as above.
