Microgreens and organic food are besties. Food enthusiasts love microgreens for salad dressings and garnishing.
A tiny matured plant
Many confuse microgreens with sprouts, but these are poles apart, not even on the same side. As the sprouts are grown in water, the microgreens are grown in the same old soil. A microgreen is a kid plant, the leaves are tiny and the roots up to 10 centimetres.
What benefits do the Microgreens provide?
• These are interesting blend of flavours; their nutritious value is off charts.
• Growing microgreens isn’t rocket science, it doesn’t even come close to class 8th science. These microgreens could be procured or homegrown, we make sure that these are pesticides free and fresh. They are used quickly after harvesting.
• If everything goes right, these come out to be cost effective and easy maintainable and are really healthy if consumed right away.
• These are aesthetically appealing, you can have them potted and eat whenever you like.
Versatile enough to be any miniature version of a plant
If it’s something that grows, there can be microgreen developed for it. For instance, popular microgreens are Radish white, Amaranth red, Pak Choi, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Broccoli, Onion, Beetroot etc. The fun thing about Microgreens is that they may have totally different taste from their bigger counterpart, but much more added nutrition. These are put in shakes, smoothies and of course as a salad dressing.
Plant some in your home
• As you harvest them by your own. The ideal scenario looks like this: You grow them, they look pretty and after they grow enough, you trim and eat them.
• Pick a pot, a container, a deep lid. It has to be 10 cm deep. Add soil. Add manure for a better effect.
• Sprinkle the packaged seeds pack over the layer of soil. Cover it one more layer of soil.
• The seeds will grow in 3 days, then start exposing the plant to sunlight (3-5 hours) and a little water and air exposure. It will start growing after some time.
After you’re done admiring and getting lost in the process, you’ll notice the colourful plant that you have grown with your dedication. Now take the scissors, cut the tall part above the soil and use it however you like. We use it to enhance the flavours in our dishes. These provide that extra kick to our food which is very essential to us.
