We've really gotten into growing fresh sprouts since the pandemic hit. It's a way to have fresh greens and not go to the store to get them. My favorite is the Ancient Eastern Blend from Mumm's Sprouting Seeds. I find myself tossing them in salads and in stir fry, but that's about it. When it comes to incorporating sprouts into recipes, I'm creatively bankrupt and haven't found too many interesting recipes out there (other than what's in MJF magazine).

If you use sprouts as part of your diet, how do you use them?

Hi Rachel! I love sprouts in sandwiches, wraps and fresh rolls. Iíve also used them in tacos or burritos instead of lettuce. I once had them served as a garnish on a bowl of soup which was very pretty. My favorites are the organic micro greens. Iíve never cooked with sprouts before so Iím curious to hear what other farmgirls suggest.

Cheers! ~ Marilyn

Hi, Marilyn! I hope you're well!

Sprouts on tacos is a great idea! I'm going to try that next time. I've cooked with them in stir-fry and they are always good - flavorful and still a bit crunchy, but I think you would need the heartier, bigger sprouts to make it work. I imagine the dainty micro-greens might kind of wilt away.

I have a batch of my favorites - ancient grains - growing right now. I'm going to let them sprout for probably another day because I like them best when they get the little leaves on the end - extra greens!
