How to Sprout Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds can be sprouted in many ways. The most common are:

1) Sunflower shoots grown from whole sunflower seed

2) Sprouting in a sprouting jar

3) Soaking overnight to start germination and then drying in a low-temperature oven or dehydrator and eating similar to nuts.

How to eat Sunflower Sprouts

You can eat sunflower seed sprouts raw, or add them to salads, sandwiches and smoothies. Sunflower shoots are also a delicious addition to stir-fries and soups. Sunflower sprouts make a great topping for tacos or even as an ingredient in grain bowls. Sunflower sprouts can also be roasted like nuts with oil and salt.

Sunflower sprouts are crunchy and nutty in flavor, making them a great snack on their own or as part of a larger dish. Sunflower sprouts can also be used to make pesto, dressings, hummus and other dips. Sunflower microgreens are perfect for adding colour and texture to salads and sandwiches.

  1. Mary Thomas (Verified Buyer)

    What a joy to find these excellent raw organic Sunflower seeds after ordering quite a few batches of supposedly raw Sunflower seeds from other sellers that simply refused to sprout until they went bad.
    These Sky Sprouts are bursting with life, all the seeds sprouted perfectly, with no problems whatsoever.
    Delicious crunchy sprouts. Will never order from anyone else in future.
    Many thanks for supplying these little wonders.
    Perfecto!

  2. Christina Welch (Verified Buyer)

    My order arrived a couple of days after I placed my order. Everything arrived in perfect condition and, as this was my first time trying sprouting, I could not wait to get started. So far I have tried the sunflower seeds, the process was easy and the sprouts are delicious! Very nutty with a crisp crunchiness, they are great for cold salads or for adding into/on top of a warm meal. I find them surprisingly filling and wholesome.

  3. Stephen Westgarth (Verified Buyer)

    Excellent.

    Sprouted slowly over 4-5 days, which surprised me since it was late May when I was sprouting.

    These are delicious. Almost like little crunchy green nutty carrots, but better for you and much more interesting.

    Highly recommended.

  4. Rico Sergeant (Verified Buyer)

    These Sunflower seeds are really nice and I find them easier to grow than other brands I’ve tried, My experience with Sky sprouts is that they are professional and fast, and very high quality product.

  5. Nicki (Verified Buyer)
