Sprouting Seeds

I came across my seed sprouting jar yesterday when I was clearing out a cupboard and have decided to have some on the go again. Can't decide what to do first. Does anybody have any ideas?

Sprouts

When we were in Australia they used to put a garnish on sandwiches which was like salad cress only much much bigger. Is there anyone in Australia who might know what this was please?

Sprouting Seeds

The only seeds we've successfully sprouted have been alfalfa.
We tried Mung beans but they were rather soft. Also Fenugreek - didn't like the taste!!

Not sure what you had on Aussie sandwiches! They often use Alfalfa but they are small.
Wheat grass is quite common but mainly for juicing. Very healthy but doesn't taste too good!!
Maybe someone else can help you.

Sprouting Seeds

I decided on green lentils and chick peas to start with. They took about three days and we had some sprinkled on salad last night. They were delicious and added a lovely crunch. Still have some in the fridge and once they've been eaten I'll try something different.

I would think Alfalfa was the garnish you ate in Austrailia. Very easy and quick to sprout and just a small sprinkling of seeds gives an abundance of sprouts.

Sunflower and Pumpkin seeds are nice sprouted and brocolli and radish sprouts are nice too.

Whichever you choose, they all benefit from being soaked overnight prior to sprouting.
