Yes, it’s the Sprouting Queen here again…..another new sprout for me in this recipe:
These beautiful little sprouts are gluten free and chock full of iron. Simple to sprout with a about 3-5 minutes of care per day, they’ll be ready to nibble on in just 4-5 days.
This colorful, sweet and tangy salad is simple to mix up. Combining fruits and vegetables in a salad is always a great combination and then the buckwheat sprouts kind of give each bite a chewy hearty texture that makes this salad much more like a meal than a side dish. I started with some simple greens, topped them with a handful of colorful shredded carrots and added in slices of pear, apples and strawberries. Sprinkled on the sprouts, a few black sesame seeds and then drizzled the top with my favorite lite vinaigrette – Spicy Orange . A tangy tart combination of flavors, full of nutrients that wont leave you feeling like you just finished Thanksgiving dinner but will definitely be a perfect tasty lite meal for family or just a special treat for yourself anytime. I love how the fruit flavors compliment the tangy vinegar in the dressing and give so much bite for the buck. Buckwheat that is, to find out more on easy sprouting instructions, go to the bible of sprouting Sprout People.com
Get some seeds and try out sprouting for yourself if you haven’t discovered it yet. It’s simple and inexpensive. Adds wonderful nutrients to your meals and is just fun watching those little buggers grow each day.
