So what exactly are microgreens?
Microgreens are the sprouts and seedlings of vegetables and herbs. Although they have been around for decades, it is only in the last few
years that microgreens have become exceptionally popular.
Microgreens are tiny ‘garnish-sized’ shoots packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
They also have a concentrated nutrient content which means they are often higher in nutrients than mature green vegetables and they take only half the growing time.
As a result, you only have to eat a small amount of microgreens to get a big dose of goodness.
