My favorite sprouts and microgreens (copy from green harvest)
1. Mung beans – organic
– 1kg = 12$ – purebulkfoods.com.au
– Organic mung beans are one of the healthiest sources of plant protein there is. They are antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, high in amino acids, protein, fibre, antioxidants, B vitamins and minerals. Mung beans are easily digested when cooked and sprouted, and are great added to soups, curries, salads, dips and stir-frys. Mung beans need to be soaked prior to cooking.

Alfalfa is the most popular sprout with a delicious nutty flavour. It is highly nutritious and rich in vitamins B1, B2, C, E, K, D and especially vitamin A; minerals such as phosphorus, calcium (five times more than milk), magnesium, iron, potassium, sulphur, zinc; and a good quantity of protein (35%) and fibre. Alfalfa sprouts are used to support convalescence, and to prevent anaemia and osteoporosis. Expose the sprouts to full sunlight on the 5th day to make them more nutritious. Try to avoid sprouting alfalfa during very hot weather; a germination temperature between 16 – 25°C works best.
Lucerne seed with inoculant is also available for green manure and cover crops.
