Serving the Nutritious Sprouts

Diet Start

Sprouts can be cooked or served raw as a plain vegetable. Use sprouts with the seeds (but not the hulls) attached. If you cook sprouts, take care not to overcook them, as this will destroy their crispness. Cook them just long enough to remove the raw flavor. All sprouts (with the exception of alfalfa) are appetizing when cooked.

To sauté sprouts, place a small amount of oil in a pan and add the sprouts plus a small amount of water or Tamara sauce. Cover the pan and cook for ten minutes (son pie prefer to cook sprouts for only five to eight mi Minced onion or mushrooms browned in the oil add as do shredded carrots, turnips, and cabbage.

You can also steam sprouts or brown them in an amount of oil.

Cooked sprouts can be added to any vegetable c nation for casserole dishes and are popular in stir vegetables. They are a great addition to dress up plat ads and scrambled eggs or omelets.
