Have you ever wonder how will your sprouts taste before growing them?
Here is a quick guide to the taste of 6 commonly grown spouts:
Adzuki bean sprouts: The beans themselves are very sweet. When they sprout, they form fine, grass-like sprouts that have a nutty taste.
Alfalfa sprouts: One of our favourite. They have a mild nutty flavor and crunchy texture and are excellent for wraps, salads and sandwiches.
Broccoli sprouts: These delicate green sprouts with tiny white stems are crispy and have a mild cabbage flavor with a slightly peppery hint, suitable for use in sushis, pizzas and wraps.
Radish sprouts: These sprouts taste like a full grown radish with a smoother and a more delicate texture. They have silky stems, leafy tops, and a peppery-hot taste. They taste wonderful when served with feta cheese, salads and strawberries.
Mung bean sprouts: They are very commonly seen in Asian dishes, with a crunchy texture and a slightly bland flavor. Unlike many delicate sprouts, they hold up well in stir-fries.
Soybean sprouts: They have a stronger flavored than mung bean sprouts and are also good for stir-fries
