Growing Microgreens



Microgreens are seedlings that reach no taller than 10cm and are harvested usually with just one or two sets of true leaves. The thin stems and young leaves are full of vitamins, minerals and rich in antioxidants. As they are so easy to grow all year, you can have an abundance of healthy, homegrown greens simply from your windowsill. Seemingly the use of microgreens in cooking sprouted in the 1980’s among chef’s in North America and are now used in cooking all over the world. Used as garnishes for stir fry, smoothies, sandwiches, soups, stews and salads they not only pretty up the plate but also add good nutritional value to your diet.
