Raw vegetables are extremely beneficial for the health, and the homegrown ones contain much more nutrients than the ones you can buy from the grocery store. The whole procedure requires some time, but those vegetables will enhance your health and offer numerous health advantages.
1. ROMAINE LUCETTE
Use the bottom of a lettuce head to grow new romaine lettuce. Put stumps of the romaine lettuce in a ½ inch water. After a few days, once new leaves and roots appear, transplant the romaine lettuce into soil. You can also regrow cabbages in the same way.
2. BOK CHOY
Place the Bok Choy’s root ends in water in a well- lit area. After 1-2 weeks, transplant them to a pot that has soil.
You can re-grow your new celery plant by using the leftover celery bottom. You should cut the base off and put it in a bowl or saucer exposed to the sun. Over time, the new leaves will thicken and grow in the middle of the base. You should transfer it to soil after 3 days.
Use carrot tops to re-grow carrot greens. Place them in a dish with some water, and place the dish in a well-lit room or on a window sill. Even though the greens have a bit bitter taste, chop them, add some garlic and vinegar, and you can add them to your salad.
Put the stems in a glass of water and transfer them into a pot with soil, once they become long enough. Keep the pot in a room with sufficient amount of light. In a couple of months, you will have your own, home-grown cilantro.
Put basil clippings that have stems of 3-4 inches in a glass of water, and place them in direct sunlight. When the roots get to 2 inches long, transfer them to pots. With time, they will grow into full basil plants. In order to avoid getting slimy basil plants, change the water constantly.
Garlic sprouts can be grown from the garlic clove. New garlic sprouts will have a milder flavor, and can be added to pasta, salads and other dishes. When they begin to sprout, you should place them in a glass with little water.
You should use discarded roots for re-growing scallions. Namely, leave an inch of the scallion attached to the root, place it in a glass of water and leave it in a well-lit room.
