3 Interesting Facts about Microgreens!

Did you know...

🌱 Microgreens date back to the 1980s: They were first used on chef menus in California and gained popularity eastward throughout the 90s.

The varieties and uses of microgreens have greatly evolved and expanded. Originally, the offerings consisted of about 5 varieties: arugula, basil, beets, kale, and cilantro. Now there are over 25 different varieties of microgreens, from peas to mustard to amaranth! Each variety offers its own unique appearance, flavor, and health benefits.

🌱 Microgreens are a super nutritious superfood: In some cases up to 40x more nutritiously dense than their mature versions!

Microgreens provide a variety of health benefits. These miniature greens are known to have high levels of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that may aid in keeping your body healthy as well as fighting off numerous diseases and illnesses. While small in physical size, microgreens have highly concentrated amounts of vitamins such as vitamins C, E, and K as well as lutein and beta-carotene.

🌱 Microgreens are not limited to salads: Microgreens are bursting with flavor and the uses are endless, from breakfast to dinner!

If you are not a huge fan of eating salads, there are many other ways to incorporate microgreens into your lifestyle. Microgreens can be added to sauces such as pesto, hummus and chimichurri. They add a delightful crunch and zip to sandwiches, wraps and tacos. Mild varieties such as cabbage, kale, or broccoli can be added to smoothies for added nutritional value. Microgreens add a pop of flavor and refreshing texture as a garnish to just about any dish, such as omelets, stir frys and pizzas. The possibilities are truly endless!
