Introduction: 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.
Step 2: Watering the Seeds on Day 1
Add water to cover 1" higher than seeds
Stack over another plastic dish to drain and catch water.
Repeat daily for 3-4 days.
Step 3: Water Draining Day 3
Remove drained water immediately or seeds will rot. The plastic discs have hole drilled in with a stopper to allow water to drain.
Step 4: Mung Sprouts Ready to Use
Repeat with water and drain daily.
I pour the drained water into my plants.
When the sprouts have split and germinated add them to wraps, sandwiches or salads.
Fresh sprouts are really fresher than the bought ones.
