Homemade Broccoli Sprouts

Make your own nutritious homemade broccoli sprouts with just a few simple steps.

Author Meghan

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp broccoli sprouting seeds
  • filtered water

Instructions

  1. Add broccoli seeds to mason jar. Cover with 2 inches filtered water and cap with sprouting lid. Store in warm, dark place (such as kitchen cabinet or pantry) overnight.

  2. In the morning, drain the water. Rinse seeds with fresh water by swirling then draining the water. Most of the water should be drained, so to improve drainage, place jar upside down in large bowl at a 45 degree angle.

  3. Repeat the rinse, swirl, and drain process 2-3 times per day.

  4. After a few days the seeds will begin to break open and the tiny sprouts will appear. Once they’ve reached 1 inch and have long yellow leaves, give them some sunlight to help them mature.

  5. Once sprouts turn green, they’ve matured, and they’re ready to eat! Cover and store in airtight container/jar in fridge for up to 1 week.
