What can you do with microgreens?
Microgreens On Sandwiches.
Many people are unsure of how to use microgreens. Sandwiches can be rich and heavy. Microgreens bring a burst of light flavor and freshness, balancing out earthier flavor’s and providing extra nutritional value. Using microgreens in sandwiches can also provide a compliment through an added crunch of texture. Change up the variety of microgreen depending on the ingredients of the sandwich to take your sandwich to the next level.
Microgreens in Salads.
Microgreen Salads are both delicious and nutritious. Because different microgreen varieties hold such different flavor profiles, they can be combined to create salads with a light and sweet flavor, or hit the taste buds with a punch of spice or bitterness, it’s up to you. Microgreens can also be a fantastic addition to a typical leafy greens salad. Consider adding a punch of flavor and nutrition to your weeknight salads with a sharper microgreen like cabbage or daikon radish.
Microgreens in Nutritional Shakes.
Having a flat of live microgreens that you can cut and use in nutritional shakes every morning or throughout the day can help you live a healthy lifestyle – if that’s what you are pursuing. Some microgreen varieties have been proven to pack up to 40 times the nutritional value versus mature plants.
Other Uses For Microgreens.
Microgreens are often used in Wraps, Sushi, Stirfry’s, Soups, Spring rolls and in meat dishes. Although fragile, microgreens are versatile and flavourful and can compliment or shine in any dish. And yes, they make powerful and delicious garnishes – but they are more than just toppers.
