Organic non GMO seeds for microgreens and sprouts
2,00 € – 18,00 €
Fenugreek is particularly popular in India, where it is mainly used as a fresh spice or dried herb. Thanks to its mild, bitter flavour and rather simple growing process, organic fenugreek microgreens are the perfect choice to add an exotic touch to your dishes.
Organic Fenugreek seeds, botanical name Trigonella foenum graecum, are a perfect starter for those wishing to grow sprouts and microgreens for the first time. This variety is highly appreciated for its leafy leaves, which are characterised not only by a crunchy texture and slightly bitter taste, but also by a wealth of vitamin C and minerals such as iron and calcium.
How can I grow it?
Producing organic Fenugreek sprouts and microgreens is quick and easy, even at home.
To stimulate germination and make it as even as possible, we recommend soaking the fenugreek seeds for 5/6 hours before sowing. After this time, drain them well and place them on a substrate or in a container with soil.
Leave them covered for the first 3/5 days, until the first shoots have sprouted, and water them sparingly and often. At this point, you can harvest and enjoy your organic Fenugreek sprouts, or wait another 7/9 days for the microgreens.
How can I eat it?
Organic Fenugreek sprouts and microgreens have a crunchy texture and a bitter taste, reminiscent of celery. You can use them to add a tasty, healthy, exotic touch to salads, sandwiches, soups and smoothies.
Organic Fenugreek seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten and grasses.
Store the seeds in a cool, ventilated place, with temperature between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, changes in humidity and sunlight.
