Guest Hosting ONLY SPROUTS Event

Hello Friends,

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my friends and families !!!

Let this new year bring us all that we wish for and deserve.

I feel proud when I get to host a series 2 times. So, here I am again with another "Only Series" brainchild of Pari. Prior to this, I got the opportunity to host Only Series - Low Oil/Calorie. It was a wonderful success. Loved and enjoyed it.

My very first event hosting for the year, I am super excited about it and that too with a wonderful theme, "Only Sprouts".  And, what's even wonderful is that it comes with a giveaway from Pari. Please keep reading for further details.

Now who doesn't like sprouts right? Simple to grow and healthy for you. Here is little something on Sprouting from Wiki

What a wonderful way to start the year, by eating healthy and tasty both !!!

Here is a simple and short process on how to sprout your lentils, cereals (grains), seeds and even vegetables.

Wash them thoroughly in water. Soak them in plenty of water overnight (i use lukewarm to begin with). Now drain soaked contents and put them in lightly damped muslin cloth (or your kitchen towel - I have used both with similar results). Cover them lightly as if folding the cloth and leave it on your counter for 8 hours to overnight. You will start seeing little plants growing after this period. Now, some people like really long sprouts, so you can leave it overnight again for those. Another good thing about these sprouts is that you can sprout your ingredients in bulk (especially lentils, with which I have experimented). You can use whatever needed and then zip lock the rest and freeze them for a real long time. I have gone till 6 months. The good thing about this is that you can use them instantly without having to wait for a day or 2 to be able to enjoy them.

Now as always, here are the simple rules of the event itself.
  • Any number of fresh entries can be sent but only 2 entries from the archive will be accepted. Archived entries to be re-posted, else will not be accepted.
  • Only vegetarian dishes accepted. Eggs can be used if baking.
  • Use of logo is mandatory as it helps spread the word.
  • The entry should be linked back to my event announcement page and Pari's 'Only'- Sprouts, giveaway page.
  • The winner of the book from Tarla Dalal will be chosen by Pari by at the end of the event only from the links left in her event announcement page.

    • Country (this is an important field to be filled as it will be easy for us to know whether he/she is from India or abroad, hence applicable for the giveaway)
  • I will post the round up within 7 days of event completion unless there's an emergency.
  • Non bloggers can also participate, in that case they can send entries to me and I can post them on their behalf.
  • Now important dates. This event will go from 1st of January to 31st of January.
Rules for giveaway
