The most common question I get is - How do I use microgreens?
Smoothies, salads - all kinds (leafy, noodle, pickled, potato, tuna, egg, etc.), sandwiches, wraps, spring rolls, take out, soups, burgers, tacos, sushi, bagels, cheeseballs, dips, I can keep going.
The one thing I do recommend to you all, is to try to eat them uncooked. I do make an exception sometimes when it comes to the herb types (basil, parsley, dill, and cilantro), sometimes herbs need some heat to bring out the flavors - I like to use them in pesto, meatballs, and mushcakes. They are amazing toppings! If you do choose to cook them, make sure to save some!
Why should I not cook my Microgreens?
Most fruit or vegetables are the most nutritious when eaten raw. Microgreens are a superfood and can contain 4 to 40 times more nutrients then there full grown counterparts. Since microgreens cost more than their full grown counterparts, wouldn't you want to take advantage of their full potential? When microgreens are introduced to heat (even soup) they will wilt and lose their crunch. Keep that in mind when you are planning on your next meal.
I am not here to tell you how to eat your microgreens, I just want you to receive the maximum benefit of your microgreens!
