How To Grow Alfalfa Sprouts

Sprouts

It’s sprouting time!

Some of you might remember my first (and only) sprouting experience last summer, that actually went quite well. I really enjoyed watching the sprouts grow (not literally), so I thought I’d give it another go – this time with tiny alfalfa seeds. Two attempts later I think I’ve got it. If you want to grow your own little chlorophyll wonders, here’s a short guide to how to do it. 

Sprouting is easy!

Something I’ve wanted to try for a long time, but thought to be very complicated is growing my own sprouts instead of paying loads for them in the shop. After reading a blog post by my former uni friend now turned raw foodist I realised how easy it is. I’ve used green lentils, but you can basically use any seeds. In general, any plant from which you might eat the stems and leaves is a good option for sprouting. (Apparently you should use seeds specifically labelled ‘sprouting seeds’ since they have been properly cleaned- but as I didn’t know that I just used the lentils you buy in the supermarket.)
