Fenugreek sprouts are not usually found in grocery stores, so by growing them yourself, you can have these delicious, nutritious sprouts whenever you want them. Add them to sandwiches and salads, juice with vegetables, mix into potato salad, or add to sushi, rice, and pasta dishes. Fenugreek seeds are packed with essential vitamins (A, B6, C), minerals (iron and potassium), and various health-promoting phytochemicals. Save some seeds to grow a plant or two and enjoy the young, tender leaves in any way you would use other greens.
Sprouting is as easy as 1—2—3! Simply soak your seeds in water overnight (about 8 to 12 hours), place them in your sprouting container, then rinse at least twice daily until sprouts have reached the length you desire. See inside of packet for more information about growing sprouts.
Sprouts can be grown in a variety of containers. The easiest method is to use the Botanical Interests Seed Sprouter™. It provides optimal air circulation anddrainage, and has removable tray dividers that allow you to grow up to four different batches of sprouts at once.
Sprout Seed Safety: To ensure you are purchasing the safest possible sprouting seeds, a sample from each seed lot we receive is sent to an independent laboratory where it must test negative for foodborne pathogens including E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and Staph. For maximum safety, it is recommended that you disinfect the outside of your seeds and your sprouting container prior to sprouting.
