Coole post weer, glad to have you back
I love sprouts!! Sprouted chickpeas are my fave, I add them to salads and they imrpove the taste soo much:)
still not quite ready for sprouted chickpeas I think, but I must try again soon!
Great post! I just love the slightly bitter taste, that’s what makes the sprouts, sprouts!
To bad sprouts have been mentioned in relation to the EHEC outbreak. I still have a package in my fridge. I want to eat them, my boyfriend think’s I shouldn’t! Haha, well I think it’s sweet he’s a little concerned.
they have? brrr! i have to say I keep eating everything actually, lol. i’m really apathetic when it comes to things like this. but, if you make sure they’re from Holland, it should be ok right?
jealous that you actually LIKE the bitter taste, ugh!
Yes, me too! The origin of EHEC is Germany I think, so I just eat everything I would normally do. This morning I heard on the news that sprouts probably aren’t the source. That German government likes to spread fear it seems! They point in a direction, before even knowing for sure.
I couldn’t pick a favorite sprout, there are so many delicious ones, like alfalfa, radish, broccoli, etc. I love them as a salad topping, as they add a nice punch.
Mung bean sprouts are also great in soups or stir-fries.
But I usually buy sprouts, the whole sprouting process scares me a bit. I’m already having a hard time keeping my basil plant alive!
haha aww! i can’t keep plants alive for the live of me either! but sprouting quinoa, for example, is so easy!
glad you have a great weekend!!
I sprout some, but need to do it more. I do love them, well not all of them.
