TASTE  •  EDIBLE PARTS

Alfalfa is also known under the name of Lucerne.
They are the same and carries the Latin name Medicago sativa.
Lucerne / Alfalfa has a special place in my heart. They were
some of the first sprouts, I cultivated as a child with my mother.
 
Their taste is exactly the same as when I myself was a little
curious sprout who could hardly see over the edge of the table
- Nearly neutral as the green leaves of iceberg ... yum!
 
The neutral flavor becomes a little sweeter, if you let the
sprouts get a nice green color in their little leaves.

SIZE  •  LOOKS

Alfalfa sprouts have small, bright green leaves, which
are really pretty seen up close. The sprouts have a white
stem and root. The root is single, long and slender.
 
They do not grow root hair as Radishes and Broccoli.
Alfalfa roots are single, white and slender.
 
Alfalfa sprouts are quite fragile, so they should be
rinsed gently. On the other hand sprouts grown of
quality seeds are quite hardy, and they can last up to
8 days after they have formed leaves.
 
If your alfalfa sprouts are yellowish / white in the leaves,
they should be placed in a lighter place. They form
chlorophyll in their small leaves during a day or so.
 

RECIPES WITH ALFALFA SPROUTS

I use Alfalfa sprouts in my food 2-3 times a week.
Why? Because they are easy to mix with all types of
salad, vegetables and fruits. Therefore everything from
my salads, smoothies and wraps a generous handful
of sprouts.
 
You will soon discover that a teaspoon of seeds will give
you a big handful of sprouts. If you have been 'swamped'
by them, they keep well in the fridge for up to 7 days.
