My favorite ingredients: mustard, sprout seeds, and this hummus. For a full guide to make your own sprouts, click here. Get the full Grain-free Walnut Bread recipe or you can use the Nourishing Nut & Seed Bread for a more hearty sandwich, or the tastes like Rye Flaxseed Loaf. I find the Walnut Bread toasts the best.

    What a treat for the eyes! What type of sprout is this? I like to sprout at home but have never seen a variety in such a deep shade of purple.

    • McKel Hill

      These are red daikon seeds; so easy to sprout Lauren!

  • Michelle

    Hi McKel, I really enjoyed your recipe posts that included the nutritional info about the main ingredients! I’m curious, what are the benefits of eating sprouts?

    • McKel Hill

      Great question Michelle- check out the sprouting guide where I share those details!

  • Rebeca

    I got red daikon seeds after seeing your pictures. True story. I guess I’m shallow when it comes to sprouts?
    I do love a good open-faced sandwich! Great option for a quick lunch.
