grow my own bean sprouts using tea pot. Yes, u heard me right. It is so simple
& fun! All u need is a tea pot (must be opac) which make from either metal, glass or ceramic. Old kettle will also do.
firstly, measure your beans. 2-3 tbsp of mung beans or any amount enough to cover
the bottom layer of your tea pot/kettle is good enough.
& pre-soak the beans for 6-8 hrs. You can see the green skin of the bean
start to breaks……
1 before u go to sleep
and rinse the soaked bean. Put them in the cleaned tea pot & close the lid
of tea pot.
just place my tea pot on the table near kitchen there. A visible place please
so that u don forget abt the rinsing time.
DO NOT open the lid of the tea pot until the harvesting day.
your bean with water 2-3 times daily. Preferably, before u go out for work or
etc. Repeat this step in the afternoon (if u are at home), or do it after u
come back from work.
not open the lid of your tea pot. Just add in water to the tea pot through the
mouth of the tea pot. Give it a little shake & then drain off.
know, sure u are eager to see how your bean sprouts have being doing.....okay.
U can take a quick glance to check its readiness.
to avoid light from reaching the sprouts. Once they are exposed to light, they will tend
to grow longer & longer. People usually prefer short & fat sprouts rite?
So give it a dark environment.
bean sprouts are ready!
Reminder, if u r busy in the middle of preparing this sprouts or not ready to cook the sprouts yet, u can just place your tea pot temporarily in the fridge. it will slow down the growth of the sprouts.
the vegetable that grow madly...uncontrollable... in my garden is bayam or amaranthus.
are 3 types of bayam there in my garden, the green one, the red one and the mix color one.
not sow the bayam seeds. I did grow bayam on my last August's post and did keep 2-3
bayam plants till old for seed collecting. i am very sure that I did cutoff the old bayam and had collected the
So where are all these bayam seeds come from? I still don’t get it.
Anyway, I am
very happy with it. It grows so well although by itself! No complain! Much much better than those
vegetable that purposely plant with planning.
given away my bayam to many peoples and i myself had cooked it many times. Taste
so so good! It is still so fertile +fat + tall now!
It is now started to grow
seeds. I guess when I water my plants, the water bring the fertilizer to the
bayam. I did put lots of baja. Let's
enjoy the beauty of bayam ^_^ wuhahah
sayur pahit/mustard cabbage/kai choy has grown up. It is called sayur pahit
because it has a bitter taste in it. Should i harvest it already?
used to cook this kai choy into soup by adding in anchovies and fish ball. I like
to eat my rice just with the soup (the typical chinese eating style-must has
soup). hahah. U can taste the sweetness of the anchovies & the taste of kai
I remember at one time I fall sick and I have no appetite to eat any
foods! But I did eat a bit of rice with this soup, weird right?
usually cook the thick stem of kai choy with seafood (crab meat, sotong, prawn
& scallop) in thick-egg-gravy.Sedap!
