Microgreens : Stylish and packed with nutrients!
People rave about microgreens for their appearance, taste, and texture, but also because they pack a nutritional punch. In fact, shoots are more nutrient-dense than their mature equivalents. This concentrated life form is bursting with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
What’s a microgreen?
Microgreens are vegetable and herb seeds that are soaked and then planted on potting soil and exposed to light. In other words, they are the shoots of very young vegetables. Both the stem and leaves are eaten.
A broad variety of herbs and vegetables can be eaten as microgreens (including radish, arugula, beet, kale, and lettuce). Each variety has its own unique flavour. Mild, spicy or lightly aromatic, microgreens bring to mind the taste of their mature counterparts.
