Alfalfa sprouts were named "al-fal-fa" by the Arabs who recognized them as "the father of all foods." Alfalfa sprouts are full of vitamins and minerals and are very low in calories. They're versatile, inexpensive and easy to grow, making them an excellent addition to your healthy diet. Alfalfa sprouts are the immature shoots of the alfalfa plant. The mature plant itself isn't used for culinary purposes because the mature leaves are bitter.
They are delicious and nourishing in salads, soups and sandwiches. They are excellent to add texture and crunch to coleslaw. Sprouts are a nice garnish for cream soups. Use it anywhere you would use a radish.
Alfalfa sprouts are high in potassium, which can help lower your blood pressure. They also support the generation of collagen, which helps keep blood vessels healthy. Radishes are also thought to control damage to red blood cells and help increase oxygen supply to the blood.
Sprouting is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. Simply soak your alfalfa seeds in water for 8 to 12 hours, place them in your sprouting container, in a warm area (70°) , and rinse at least twice a day for 4 to 6 days until the sprout’s small leaves turn green. Sprouts can be exposed to indirect light, although it isn’t necessary.
