[Sprouting 101] Can I mix and sprout different seeds together?
To get mix sprouts at the same time, you need to mix seeds together. Mixing seeds is a wonderful way to create a custom blend of flavors, the only thing you have to take into account is to find seeds with similar sprouting times. Alfalfa, Clover, Mustard and Radish is a good sandwich mix that is both delicious and nutrient-rich!
Alfalfa (Seed 30g, HK$28)
Like clover, alfalfa sprouts have a mild, grassy flavor. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin K, which is essential for building bones.
Mild clover is the perfect counterpart to spicier radish and mustard. It is also a rich source of phytoestrogens, which can be a benefit to women’s health.
Tiny mustard seeds produce a peppery sprout that are loaded with vitamins and nutrients including vitamins A, B6, and C, calcium, and iron.
Radish (Seed 30g, HK$28)
Like full-grown radishes, radish sprouts are hot and spicy. They’re also an excellent source of glucosinolates, chemical compounds that may help prevent cancer.
