Growing Broccoli Sprouts
Not sure how to sprout seeds? Don’t worry! Growing sprouts at home is surprisingly not difficult. It can even be a fun project for kids! You just need the right seed sprouter or sanitized jars and seeds that will germinate, and you can get everything you need for between $30 – $50.
According to Sprouts: the Miracle Food by Steve Meyerowitz, for between $50 and $100 you can get all the supplies and seeds you need to produce hundreds of pounds of food. That breaks down to pennies per pound. That’s a pretty good price if you ask me.

What About Broccoli Seed Oil?
But did you know that there’s broccoli seed oil too? You can take advantage of the sulforaphane in young broccoli in oil form that you can add to your skin lotions, shampoo, conditioner and more. It’s pretty cool.
