As we’re gearing up for the beginning of our extended season, I’ve been experimenting with Micro Greens. Micro Greens are leafy veggies extended beyond the seedling stage to provide a colorful thicket of flavorful, nutrition-packed greens. Because Micro Greens contain higher levels of concentrated active compounds than found in mature plants, they fall under the recently established “functional food” group – those food products that maintain and promote health.
How Are They Used?
- Micro Greens are a delicious and healthy “fast food” and they make a beautiful garnish for just about any dish. Try them sprinkled on scrambled eggs, grilled fish, chicken or any meat, baked potatoes, your favorite salad, or any sandwich or wrap.
- For some inspiration, check out the following recipes: Micro Green Salad with Fig Vinaigrette, Tomato with Sautéed Goat Cheese and Micro green Salad, Parmesan and Ricotta Cheese Pizza with Pistachios Bacon and Micro Greens

Have a wonderful weekend-
