I love sprouts! They’re super nutritious with high amounts vitamins A, B, C, E, K, they contain more calcium than cow’s milk and all of the essential amino acids. Sprouts make excellent additions to sandwiches, salads, dips, spreads, and stir fries. But did you know that you can grow them right in your kitchen with no soil! Sprouts are probably the easiest thing to grow in your kitchen, and you’ll make them time after time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Clean water (non-chlorinated is best)
Untreated seeds of your choice
Choosing which seeds to sprout:
|Sprout Type||Flavor||Common Uses|
|broccoli||distinct||salads, sandwiches, dips, spreads|
|fenugreek||bitter||salads, stir fries (good mixed with other sprouts)|
|lentils (blue, red, green)||varies||salads, soups, dips|
|mung beans||mild||salads, stir fries|
|mustard (oriental)||spicy||salads, sandwiches, dips|
|radish||spicy||salads, sandwiches, dips|
|quinoa||distinct||salads, dips, soups, spreads|
|sunflower||distinct (peppery)||salads, sandwiches, spreads|
How to grow sprouts:
– Soak about 2 tbsp of seeds in water for 24 hours
– Transfer to a glass jar glass jar with cheesecloth secured by a rubber band over the opening
– Rinse well every 12 hours or so
– Store them on the window sill or clean counter top where you’ll remember to rinse and eat them regularly
Within 2 days, you have early spouts! They continue to flourish through about day 6. Transfer to the refrigerator if you need to extend their life a day or two, but they’re best to eat at peak freshness.
You work too hard for your money to throw it all away on full price when you don't have to!
