Growing sprouting seeds, such as bean and alfalfa sprouts, is a great way to have delicious and nutritious food available year-round. Sprouts can be grown indoors and can be ready for harvest in as few as 3-5 days. They're mild-flavored, crunchy and delicious—excellent for snacking or adding to sandwiches, salads and other recipes. Sprouts are also low in calories and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Sprouting seeds can be grown in a seed sprouter or other container. While bean and alfalfa sprouts are the most popular sprout varieties to grow at home, other sprouting seeds, including mixes, are also available.
