Cabbage sprouts are cabbage seeds that have started to grow. They have a stalk and a base and resemble other types of sprouts, such as alfalfa sprouts. The sprouts can grow into full-blown cabbages and are often the same sprouts that farmers and other growers use to plant and grow cabbages. The sprouts come from the same family as broccoli, mustard, and arugula.

Like other similar sprouts, cabbage sprouts can be used in a variety of ways. They are a crisp vegetable and can be added as a garnish to a dish, or as part of a salad. They can be cooked as part of a stir-fry. These sprouts can also make a good addition to a sandwich or a blended vegetable drink. They can also be eaten alone as a crisp snack, or mixed with other similar vegetables, such as radish or other sprouts.

The nutritional value of cabbage sprouts is similar to cabbage. The sprouts contain antioxidants, which are beneficial in fighting off diseases such as cancer. They also contain vitamin C and vitamin A as well as smaller amounts of trace elements, including sulfur and iodine.

There are several varieties of sprouts, and they grow quite easily. The seeds can be soaked in water for several hours, kept away from sunlight for the first few days and then put in indirect sunlight to grow. Cabbage seeds can be put in a small tray to sprout, or they can be wrapped in a water-soaked paper towel and put into a plastic bag to grow. Sprouts typically take five to six days to reach the point where they are mature enough to be eaten.

Cabbage seeds to sprout can often be found at specialty grocery stores or health food stores. There are many options available online, although more atypical cabbage seeds can be hard to find, depending on the season. Seed stores and nurseries usually carry cabbage seeds, but they may not be the kind of seeds that can sprout.

If you don’t want to grow your own seeds, you may be able to find cabbage sprouts in some grocery stores. However, the sprouts might not be as easy to find as some other sprouts, such as alfalfa or Brussels sprouts. They may be easier to find in a health-food store or store or other specialty stores. Some farmer's markets may carry these sprouts, depending on where in the world they are located.
