The Complete Guide to Growing and Using Sprouts: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply — Including Easy-to-Make Recipes
While it may not seem like it, now may be the perfect time to start your spring garden.
Most plants should be transported outdoors after the danger of all frost has passed, which for many areas still will be several weeks away. But one of the easiest — and tastiest — plants to start indoors this time of year is any variety of sprout. You can plant sprouts in plastic trays and leave them on a windowsill to grow before transporting them outdoors in a few weeks, or you can create a miniature indoor greenhouse to house them during the rest of winter’s chill. But how should you select the supplies and sprouts you need to get started?
With The Complete Guide to Growing and Using Sprouts: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply — Including Easy-to-Make Recipes, author Rick Helweg walks you through the steps you’ll need to take before you enjoy your new sprout garden. Helweg first explains sprout anatomy and how the seeds transform into shoots. Readers also learn the equipment they’ll need to obtain prior to starting and what they will need to store their precious plants after harvesting. You will learn five methods to growing your sprouts so you will be able to grow fresh sprouts regardless of the space, experience, or supplies you have.
Once your new plants have grown into healthy and tasty sprouts, you’ll learn how to harvest and use your new plant collection. Helweg provides dozens of recipes you can use to incorporate your fresh sprouts into your favorite dishes. Whether you want to create spicy sprouted hummus and cream cheese and sprout spread for your next family gathering, or you want to create an exotic fenugreek sprout salad or Mexican sprout slaw, you’ll have a complete list of ingredients and directions you’ll need to wow your friends and family with delicious, healthy snacks from sprouts grown in your own yard. For those looking to create a healthy dinner dish from the garden, sample the mung bean omelet, pesto pizza, or black bean burritos.
