A microgreen is a tiny version of a vegetable : radish, brocoli, red cabage, mustard, sunflower, arugula, … and a lot more ! They’re often confused with germinated seeds. The main difference here is that you’re not eating the seed itself. When eating a microgreen, you’ll cut at the base of the stem and leave the seed in the subtrate. You typically eat them when the cotyledons are fully developped (beteen 7 to 21 days).
Consumed at a very first stage of growth, they contain a real concentrate of flavors, colors and nutrients !
The taste : hot, spicy, aniseed, iodized, lemony … or all at once, they will amaze you !
The visual : bright red, light green or even dark purple and yellow… you won’t find all the colors of a rainbow, but we’re almost there.
Nutritional benefits: rich of antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, vitamins C, E, K, potassium, calcium … (and the list goes on !), each varieties has its own nutritional properties. They can contain up to 4 to 40 times more nutrients than thei mature counterparts (The University of Maryland has studied it)
