Recipe: Sprouted fenugreek soup

Soups with spices and aromatic herbs
February 04, 2010

A few days ago, I sowed fenugreek after testing the seeds.
They were vital, so I also create some fenugreek sprouts.

Fenugreek SeedsPut the seeds in a covered bowl with some water, in a warm place.

Fenugreek sproutsChange water every morning for 4-5 days, until sprouts are ready.

Easy, isn't it? Next experiment: mungo beans!

Fenugreek sprouts are sligtly bitter, cook them using also a sweet ingredient (like coconut cream) to have tasty and healthy recipes.

Some likes it bitter? Usually the answer is no, but as Yasmeen teaches us with the event Bitter Better Health, many bitter foods are also very healthy.
