Microgreens...what say you?

#1

Hi all! I just found out about a local company who is growing microgreens (organic). Theyve offered to bring me a sample to try, so I’m wondering how y’all use microgreens? What are your favorites?

I’m open to all responses…

Not so many here where I live. I like mustard, garden cress, broccoli, turnip. Use them as finishing greens. Sprinkle on just before eating and avoid cooking them as the heat destroys their health-benefiting nutrients.

Just remember, we also have micro corn and asparagus.

Mustard and cress are the only ones generally available in UK supermarkets - and a vital part of any egg mayo sandwich I may make. Others are pretty much grown only for the restaurant trade.

Garnish for sandwiches made with mayo based salads (tuna, egg). Addition to green salad. Folded into an omelet.

I actually really love microgreens, but they are ridiculously expensive. I tend to love them as a topping either on a sushi/crudo like dish, or on top of a rice or noodle bowl of sorts. If I need to use them up, I even make mini-salads out of them. They are so tender, and often more pungent greens are milder as a ‘microgreen’ so I love getting a variety of that gives you a blend of flavors.

PS. If they are willing to send me free samples, I will gladly accept. :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s become a micro discussion, then.

My favourites are micro leeks, mustards and radish. Beetroots are so pretty.

I sometimes buy them in supermarket, they are expensive. I grow them also using the seed spouter.

Usually used them in salads, or sprinkled on cooked meat as a finishing touch.

A few years ago, I remember an outbreak of some sort of toxic problem with the English Thompson and Morgan seeds, resulting the T and M products vanished from the shelves of the gardening stores here.

So I ended up with peas and arugula, and because Im just 20 minutes from the “farm”, theyre crisp and tasty and fresh. There was quite a clamor in the office to taste them, much to my surprise.

They’re quite reasonably priced, so Ill be trying them this week and planning an order for next week.
