How to grow soy sprouts at home

Living in Thailand, we became addicted to soy sprouts. If you add them to salads, rice and noodles with vegetables with the right sauces, it turns out insanely delicious! It's even delicious to just eat them with soy sauce, raking in more with a spoon. They are juicy, delicious, healthy and smell fresh. But ... but lately it is quite difficult to find them for a normal price and good quality. And they have completely disappeared from the shelves of some stores.

Therefore, to all lovers of Asian cuisine (and just delicious and healthy food), I suggest remembering school biology lessons and conducting a small experiment — to grow sprouts at home. And it can be not only soy, but also other legumes and wheat. It will not take you much time and you do not need to take care of the sprouts as a garden. The main thing is not to forget to add water ;)

So, three options — choose the one that seems the easiest!

Germination in a glass jar

It's very simple — you wash the selected seeds, put them in a jar and pour water so that it covers them from above. Cover the neck of the jar with gauze or fine mesh and secure it with an elastic band, leave the jar overnight. In the morning, drain the remaining water and rinse the seeds. After that, the seeds are laid out on a drain grid and washed several more times during the day. At night, they are soaked again in a jar. Harvesting in this way lasts from three to seven days. The duration depends on which seeds you decide to germinate. The easiest way is with wheat, radish, peas, chickpeas, lentils, mash, beans — they are ready for use immediately after their sprouts have begun to unfold from seeds. But with cabbage seeds you will have to tinker a little, since they become suitable for food only when the green part and the first leaves appear.

Germination of buckwheat

It turns out that buckwheat sprouts are very often used as an ingredient for salads. Although I have never tasted buckwheat sprouts. Place the seeds in a jar overnight, as described in the first version. Then wash the seeds and put them in a bowl or glass jar and cover with a towel. Leave it in this position for a few days. Buckwheat sprouts are ready for use immediately after they have sprouted. Buckwheat releases a gelatinous substance, which must be washed off well so that mold does not appear.

Growing sprouts in soil

Another option is to put the seeds in the soil. It is usually used for sprouts that need to be eaten with the green part. You buy soil and trays for the land. Soak the seeds overnight, drain the water in the morning and leave them under a towel for 1-2 days. After the seeds have sprouted, put them in trays on the soil, water them and cover them with a thin layer of earth on top. take care of like an ordinary houseplant.
