Kaiware sprouts are typically available year round.
A member of the Brassicaceae or mustard family, Kaiware sprouts also known as daikon radish sprouts are the three to six day old shoots of the white daikon radish.
Pronounced ki-WAHR-ay, Kaiware sprouts consist of thin white stems capped with petite vibrant green leaves. These delicate sprouts have a crunchy texture and pack a peppery bite, similar to that of the full grown daikon radish. Around the third day of sprouting the roots will have tiny hairs on them, these hairs are often mistaken for mold but are actually part of the sprout and will collapse against the sprout once washed.
Kaiware sprouts are rich in glucoraphenin and other enzymes which studies have shown have anti-cancer properties.
Kaiware sprouts are perfect for adding texture and a peppery kick to a variety of different preparations. Add to meat and veggie sandwiches or wraps. Use in fresh summer rolls or spring rolls. Their slightly spicy flavor complements sushi rolls and sashimi. Serve atop soups and stir-fries.
Kaiware sprouts have long been a popular ingredient in Asian cuisine.
Kaiware sprouts are easy to grow needing only water, light and a container in which to sprout them in.
