Microgreens are the same vegetable as your garden variety but not fully grown, and with more nutrients. The harvest times are much quicker, often as little as 6-10 days, compared to the 60-90 days full size vegetables take.
Many varieties are available to grow at home or purchase through a local farmer or csa. Some examples are celery, radish, sunflower, salad mixes, basil, cilantro, broccoli and many others.
Microgreens can be used as a stand alone meal, in soups, salads and many other dishes. Many chefs prefer to use microgreens as a garnish for their main courses, to add a kick to their salads, or even in soup. You can check our microgreen recipe pages for healthy and easy recipes.
