Tiny, tasty sprouts are chock-full of nutrients and health benefits. Once you’re familiar with the dos and don’ts of sprouting, you can easily grow fresh sprouts right at home.
As seeds germinate, they start to sprout. During this part of the growing process, the following natural chemical changes take place:
Sprouts offer many health benefits, such as improving digestion and nutrient absorption. Additionally, sprouts are a great source of beneficial antioxidants that promote immune health.
Studies suggest that sprouts have anti-tumor effects. Eating sprouts regularly may even help prevent bladder, breast and prostate cancer.
There are many ways to enjoy nutritious sprouts.
Try one of the three sprouting methods below. Each one suits different kinds of sprouts, so double-check before you start. (Related: Easy to grow and nutrient-rich: Considerations and instructions for sprouting.)
This method is best for pea sprouts, sunflower sprouts and wheatgrass.
Soak and sieve method
Use the soak and sieve method to sprout buckwheat, chickpeas, lentils, mung bean and quinoa.
Sack or cheesecloth method
This method suits alfalfa, broccoli, cabbage or clover sprouts.
The sprouts included in the list below are protein-rich. They also contain vitamins A, C, E and K, along with minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.
Use high-quality raw seeds for sprouting. Cooked or toasted seeds won’t sprout.
Don’t get seeds that have not been irradiated, which destroys essential nutrients. Buy fresh seeds that are organic to avoid chemicals or pesticides.
Homegrown sprouts are cheaper compared to store-bought ones, and they’re rather easy to grow. Try sprouting with beans, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and see which ones suit your tastes and nutritional needs.
