Sprouts are yummy

I grow sprouts year around: mung bean seeds, lentils, broccoli. So easy and yummy!

     I take it you either don’t live in UK or you have an enormous plot of land.

    I have never heard of anyone growing lentils in this country.

    Mung beans are just regular beansprouts, very easy on a windowsill in a jam jar or similar with a bit of muslin and an elastic band. I think you can sprout lentils indoors like mung beans, or perhaps like cress in a shallow tray of compost, as long as it's reasonably warm. I've done chick peas in the same way as mung beans.

    A bit controversial for a first post😉
    I like them too.

    We regularly grow mung bean sprouts in jars in the kitchen ... got some on the go at the moment .... 


    Stir fry on the menu for Friday 😋 

    Not really what I’d call gardening ‘tho ... doesn’t involve going out in the open air in various weathers, fending off slugs. snails and vine weevils or pulling up weeds 🤣

    Oh, I see. Silly me.  I thought it was a case of growing sprouts, mung beans, lentils and broccoli. Not sprouting mung beans, lentils and broccoli.  Or have I still got it wrong?🤔

    Not so long ago I discovered the germination of seeds, I like to add them to my breakfast.

    Thank you all for sharing your experience with sprouting! It’s important for me to receive your feedback.

    Well I'm not sure I'd fancy them on my porridge or weetabix :s , but they're nice for a stir-fry, a salad or a sandwich.

    Lime and Tequila fried chick pea sprouts - one of my favourite things. ..
