Prepare TruRoots Sprouted Lentils according to package instructions.
Drain any excess water, transfer the lentils to a bowl and let the lentils cool to room temperature.
Heat a small skillet over low heat. Add the ground cumin and cook until just fragrant, about one minute. Combine the cumin, olive oil, lime, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
Add the cooled lentils, tomatoes, cilantro, and jalapeno. Toss well.
Cover and chill in the refrigerator or let stand for 1 hour before serving for the flavors to blend.
