How and Why You Should Use Organic Arugula Seeds for Sprouting
Organic Arugula Seeds make a great condiment all on their own. But their foremost use is to grow microgreens that are among the most nutritious and antioxidant-rich foods you can find. Organic Arugula Sprouts will give you a dose of iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin C and varied B vitamins in every serving. They also taste great, so it’s very easy to include this microgreen into any well-balanced diet.
As arugula is a type of mustard, you can enjoy edible arugula seeds right as they are. Add them to salads, marinades, pickled foods, or grind into powder to use in spice mixes. However, it’s definitely best to use Organic Arugula Seeds for sprouting. This way you’ll get more nutritional benefits out of them.
Organic Arugula Sprouting Seeds are very easy to manage even if you are a complete beginner. All you need is a container and a bit of potting soil. Wet the soil thoroughly, sprinkle the seeds on top and cover the container. Open it every day for a bit to spray some more water to keep the soil wet but not soaked. In a few days you’ll get the first organic arugula sprouts and will be able to leave the container uncovered. They should be mature enough for harvesting in about 10 days. The sprouts should have two leaves each by that time.
Note that Organic Arugula Sprouts taste milder than mature plants. However, they still have the complex mix of the earthy, spice, and grassy flavors as full-grown arugula.
How to Use Organic Arugula Seeds in the Kitchen
Whether you choose to use organic arugula seeds for sprouting or cooking, you’ll be able to enjoy their rather complex and rich flavor. Arugula goes extremely well with pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and salads.
You can use organic arugula sprouts raw, to get the maximum nutritional benefits. But you can also add them to soups and stews at the end of the cooking process.
After the harvest, keep sprouts in an aired container in the fridge for up to a week. Seeds should be stored in a dry and cool place away from sunlight. You can buy organic arugula seeds in bulk as they can stay viable for up to six years.
