ALFALFA SPROUTS AND MICROGREENS IN RECIPES

I personally love Alfalfa sprouts in everything from smoothies and salads to dips and green topping. Why? Because this neutral tasting plant is easy to mix with all types of salad, vegetables and fruits. They are so easy to match with any taste in a dish – just like iceberg lettuce.

When you dose the seeds, you will soon discover that just a small teaspoon of seeds will give you two big handfuls of sprouts. If you have cultivated too many, they will keep well in the fridge for up to 7 days…or you could use them in your smoothie or fresh juice.
