Beetroot sprouts have a light earthy taste but it is the fantastic colour that that makes all the difference on your plate. They should be used raw in salads, smoothies or on sandwiches. Eaten raw, they maintain all of their nutrient value.
Rich in vitamins, amino acids and mineral salts, they are easy to digest and have a low calorie content. Brassicas will show microscopic roots starting around day 3. They are called root hairs and are most visible just before rinsing when the sprouts are at their driest. When you rinse the root hairs will collapse back against the main root. Many people make the mistake of thinking these root hairs are mold, but they are not.
Plant in trays as microgreens (2-4 weeks depending on how tall you like them)
