Microgreens will be available shortly
A microgreen is a baby plant
A microgreen is a baby plant, usually between 6-14 days old. They are harvested when the first true leaf has sprouted. Microgreens are grown in trays of soil, and the stems and leaves can be eaten.
They are grown or purchased by people focused on nutrition, or are used as both a visual and flavour component, primarily in fine dining restaurants. They turn any meal into a masterpiece!
Flavour and nutrition
They pack a punch in the flavour department, and their nutritional value averages 5 times that of the matured plant. The Red Cabbage microgreen has 40 times the Vitamin E of the mature plant! They are loaded with phytonutrients and antioxidants, and are a great source of Vitamins E, C, and K, among others.
Let’s use them
They are great in salads, soups and smoothies, and add that little extra something to the dish as a garnish.
