Grow Sprouts Indoors for A Nutritious Crunch All Year Long!

I grow my own sprouts all year long on my kitchen counters… and believe me, it couldn’t be easier!  All you need are some sprouting seeds (I like these alfalfa seeds, and these bean sprouts), wide-mouth mason jars, sprouting lids, and some tap water. An endless supply of sprouts will be at your culinary fingertips anytime. I love grabbing a handful of alfalfa sprouts to add to a sandwich or a wrap, or adding a handful of bean sprouts to stir fries or ramen soup. I put together a list of all my favorite sprouting supplies – so you can enjoy fresh sprouts any time!

I served my tofu salad sandwich on homemade sourdough bread. For a lighter version, you can add a scoop to the top of a salad, or enjoy in lettuce cups. This meal is fairly low calorie and has enough protein to keep you full until lunch! I am a huge fan of high-protein plant based recipes, and this is one of our favorites. You can also use any kind of tofu you have on hand. I like the extra firm silken tofu, but if you have a different variety it will work just as well.
