Alfalfa is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world and is a member of the legume family. It has a mild, nut-like flavor commonly enjoyed in salads, sandwiches, burritos, baked bread, or blended into smoothies and juices. Alfalfa seeds are highly nutritious and contain an enzyme called betaine that breaks down proteins and fats. They also provide a generous supply of beta-carotene, vitamins C and K and various minerals.
Alfalfa sprouting seeds should be soaked for 4-6 hours and will sprout in 5-7 days. They need to be thoroughly rinsed with cool, clean water every 8-12 hours and then drain as much water as possible. Refrigerate your sprouts after their final rinse.
