Latest obsession

Lately I have been quite obsessed with growing baby vegetables, from pea shoots to sunflower and other vegetables.

This is a plate of sunflower sprouts. I used some in my salad and the rest was stir-fried. The taste of sunflower sprouts is amazing - crunchy and succulent with a hint of sunflower seed.

The good thing about growing baby greens is the short harvest time. You also do not need a lot of space to grow them. They do well indoors and outdoors, so they're perfect for apartment dwellers.


  1. Interesting to learn that sunflower sprouts are edible. I have some seeds that I kept from my dried sunflowers last year. Hopefully they germinate and I can also have some salad with sunflower sprouts. Thanks, Ting, for the sharing.

  2. Hi JC, that would be perfect. Of all the sprouts I've grown, sunflower is one of the tastiest.
