The ground is still too cold but if we have a space on the window sill we can start sowing cress and bean sprouts.
I also notice how much the leek has grown, I cut the tops off yesterday for in a soup, I then put the stem in some water. Amazing how much it has grown in one day.
Today we will grow and make a beansprout stir fry with noodles
I am using the sprouting in a bottle technique for the mung beans and sprouting in a colander for the mixed beans
As a starter we made a Five Spice Sweet Potato Soup.
This recipe is extremely simple as it is just chopped up Sweet potatoes boiled in vegetable stock and five spice added for taste. This is a hearty winter soup.
