Picture of Growing Sprouts
An easy and nutritious way to grow your own sprouts with seeds! Sprouts the wonder food...almost any seed can be sprouted. So tasty and a great way to add them to your lunches. I have a sprouting system but, you can use a stackable plastic system with a colander and tray to catch the water and cover the top with plastic wrap to keep in some moisture.

Step 1: Add seeds to the plastic dishes

Add 1 tbsp of seeds to a plastic dish with holes in them. These are mung beans but alfalfa, radish and onion seeds can be used as well.
The smaller the seed the quicker it sprouts.

Great instructable...I recently got my hands on a sprouting tray setup and this definitely helps and motivates me to try it. Those wraps look incredible!

great, hope you do try it...its easy and my kids actually enjoy them more because they taste fresher than bought sprouts

Nice deal. I typically soak the seeds overnight, they sprout in a day or two after that.

Have you ever tried sprouting different seeds together? If so, what mixes work well?

Yes, the seeds I bought are mixed as well, but the big ones take much longer than the fine seeds and then the small ones may mould before the large ones are good enough
