Home-grown "Fast Food" for Busy Families by Sara Ambarian

Talented Sara Ambarian is someone who can take something like home-grown sprouts and make mouth watering mahi mahi filets. In the article, Home-grown “Fast Food” for Busy Families, Sara shares how busy families can easily and conveniently add home grown sprouts to their food repertoire. Sara shares how the family can become interested in growing different varieties, and how these sprouts add flavor and texture to various salads, sandwiches, etc.

Sara embraces the philosophy of providing integrated lessons in gardening and cooking for children and teens, to help them become more environmentally aware, nutritionally informed and consumer savvy.

Sara mentions experiments you can easily set up at home, giving you the opportunity to determine if sprouting is something your family might enjoy. Sara also provides helpful tips about what to look for when buying sprouting seeds, and then walks you through the planting and nurturing process. A scrumptious recipe with an illustrative picture is included. If the picture doesn’t motivate you to try sprouting, I don’t know what will!!

To discover how sprouting can be easily implemented in Montessori practical life cooking and gardening lesson presentations, Montessori teachers will want to read this article as well.
