All plants in this book can be grown in jars, colanders, sieves, or bags at any height, using many different kinds of light sources, and even under pressure. In addition to showing how to grow shoots and sprouts, Wallentinson teaches how to make delicious meals with your harvest. Using step-by-step pictures and descriptive recipes, she demonstrates that shoots and sprouts are much more than just decorations on a plate.
