Sunflower sprouts, part of a growing trend of microgreen cultivations, are one week old sunflower plants that are amazingly tasty and nutritious additions to any salad or other dish. These sprouts are high in B vitamins, especially folate, as well as vitamins A, D, and E; they also contain the minerals calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus! As you might expect, they’re also very rich in fiber. When it comes to getting your hands on these greens, your best bet might be growing them at home (otherwise, you might find them in the vegetable aisle of the grocery store)! Just plant some organic seeds and allow the sprouts to grow for one week.
