In Sprouts, Shoots, and Microgreens, Wallentinson proves there is much more to shoots, sprouts, and microgreens than the classics cress and mung beans and that they are truly easy to grow, no matter where you try to do so. All plants in this book can be grown in jars, colanders, sieves, or bags at any height, using many different kinds of light sources, and even under pressure.
In addition to showing how to grow shoots and sprouts, Wallentinson teaches how to make delicious meals with your harvest. Using step-by-step pictures and descriptive recipes, she demonstrates that shoots and sprouts are much more than just decorations on a plate. Recipes include sushi rolls with quinoa and wasabi mayonnaise, baked pumpkin with lentil sprouts and almond pesto or coffee, and coconut balls with toasted buckwheat!
