Pea Shoots – Excellent Natural Supplement of Folic Acid
Pea shoots are packed with nutrients. They contain 7 times more vitamin C than blueberries and 8 times more folate than bean sprouts. Pea shoots are also rich in B group, dietary fiber and minerals.
They have a complex but refreshing taste. You can expect them to be grassy, slightly sweet but also bitter at the same time. They are also one of the few microgreens that are suitable for quick-fry.
- Soak seeds in lukewarm water in our jar for 8-12 hours out of direct light, ensure that the seeds do not flow.
- Prepare an inch thick of organic soil evenly in a shallow tray.
- Scatter seeds over the surface of the soil evenly.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and spray the surface with clean, filtered water.
- Spray the seeds 1 – 2 times a day to keep the soil evenly moist while waiting for the seeds to grow. Cover the tray with a lid/wet cloth/wet kitchen paper to keep soil moist for the first few days.
- After 10 – 14 days, your microgreens would be ready.
- To harvest, cut microgreens right above soil level with scissors. Rinse and enjoy.
