What are Microgreens?

The term 'microgreen' is used to describe a stage of growth. Microgreens are older than sprouts, but younger than baby greens. The seeds that we use to grow our microgreens are the same seeds that we use to grow the full grown version of the same plant! However, our microgreens are only around 10 days old when we harvest them. The plants may be small when harvested, but they are packed with nutrients and intense flavor. 

They're nutrient dense and packed with flavor!

Each seed, for any plant, has enough nutrients and energy stored inside itself to grow for the first few weeks. Since microgreens are harvested at only 10 days old the micros can grow off of their stored resources, so they don't require any added nutrients or fertilizer. With being so young, microgreens haven't had their growth spurt yet. Harvesting the micros at such a young stage also makes them incredibly nutrient dense because of those stored resources. An ounce of broccoli microgreens can be up to 40 times more nutritious than an ounce of full grown broccoli. This is why microgreens are considered a super food! 

How do you eat microgreens?

We get asked this a lot, and the answer is on everything! Microgreens can be put on salads, sandwiches, burritos, casseroles, pasta dishes, eggs, tacos, and just about anything else you can think of. Each variety of microgreen has a unique flavor, and usually tastes similar to the full grown vegetable of the same variety. No matter what you're eating, there is a microgreen that will go perfectly with it!
