I love sprouts. And I've learned how to grow 'em! Piece of cake!! Mmmm... cake.
This is a Portobello Mushroom 'Burger" I made for myself. Those are Sunflower Sprouts. I didn't grow those. I just ate 'em. Good stuff!
I even throw in a handful of sprouts when I'm making my daily green smoothie. Healthy!!
In sprouting jars (which you can find in most health-food stores) put two tablespoons of Organic Alfalfa Seeds and six tablespoons of water, per jar. Not plain old tap water. Filtered, spring water, etc.
The next morning (or when you remember that they're there!) drain the soak-water.
Then, just add clean water, give them a good rinse and pour it out.
Swoosh them around so that most of the brown seeds fall off. You won't get them all. No. No you won't.
Nice, yeah?! I'm cool like that.
This is how they get stored in the fridge.
They last for several days.
Unless you eat 'em right away.
Here's a shot of where they sat and grew. In my art studio. Something else that I love!!
If you've never sprouted before, give it a try!! You can use them in so many ways. Not only in green
smoothies and on mushrooms... try them in soups and sandwiches. Kids love them in sandwiches!! Heck, when I'm in a hurry, but need a little something to nourish me, I'll grab a couple of handfuls and just pop them in my mouth! It ain't pretty, but it gets the job done.
HAPPY SPROUTING Y'ALL!!
There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
