They are full of nutrients and will bring you joy and satisfaction of having grown your own produce!! You can easily grow tons of nutritious food by sprouting or growing microgreens.
Just in case if you are wondering, what microgreens are? Then… a microgreen is a tender, new shoot from a vegetable plant. This is what happens to a seed that has been sprouted. However, it shouldn't be allowed to mature completely. Because they are small, you can grow them indoors. You'll be harvesting these microgreens before they mature. And because you will not be growing them fully, microgreens can be harvested in a matter of days.
Microgreens are typically sweet in taste, tender and crisp. They are also one of the most nutritious vegetables! The nutrient content of microgreens, when they are newly sprouted, can be up to 40 times that of their mature counterparts. For e.g. microgreens made from red cabbage seeds contain 40 times more vitamin E than full-grown red cabbage and six times as much vitamin C.
So bottom-line, these microgreens are power packed with nutrients and extremely easy to grow. The best part is, since you are growing them indoor in small batches, you will always have fresh microgreens to add to your salads and sandwiches… even in the cold winter months!!
