Clover Sprouts

Pin It

Looking for a lettuce replacement on wraps, sandwiches, and burgers?
Maybe some extra pizzazz in your salad, coleslaw, or stir-fry?

{What You Need}
Seeds, water, and a growing device. 

{Buying Seeds}
An important note to growing sprouts is using organic seeds. If you can't find a local supply, I recommend ordering online from SproutPeople

{Growing Devices}
We use this sprouter from SproutPeople and it works wonderfully (especially for clover since the seeds are tiny). You could also use a glass mason jar with a small wire mesh top.

{How to Sprout}
Measure 2 Tbsp. seeds into sprouter, rinse well. 
Soak seeds in cool water for 8-12 hours.
Rinse and drain sprouts every 12 hours for 3-5 days. Set the sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight, and be sure to drain sprouts thoroughly after each rinse. That's it!

Check out SproutPeople's clover sprout page for an even more detailed look.
