Sprouts are very easy to grow, and have so many nutritional benefits. Sprouting in your kitchen is like having a mini garden in the house all year round. Sprouts contain a significant amount of protein and dietary fiber, as well as vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, thiamin, vitamin C, vitamin A, and riboflavin.
