Microgreens are 'baby plants', that fall in a category between sprouts and baby leaf vegetables. They have a strong aromatic flavor and concentrated nutrient content and come in a variety of colors and textures. Microgreens are known to boost our immunity with their high nutritious composition and are also very easy to harvest.

Microgreens are grown to only 1–3 inches tall when harvested.  This can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks depending on the type of seed.  You can have a year-round growing of microgreens; they can be grown in a garden, balcony or on a kitchen counter. Beginners often start by growing 1-2 types of seeds such as Chia, Broccoli, Mustard, Fennel, Fenugreek, Flax, carrot, Cauliflower, Radish, Amaranth, Lettuce, Basil, Rosemary, Sage, or Kale. These are among the easiest to grow varieties of microgreens

Nutritious value of Microgreens

Packed with nutrients, most microgreens are known to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and copper. They also have an added property of being rich in antioxidants. Due to their concentrated nutrient composition microgreens are known to have 40 times higher nutritious value than that of their more mature forms.

Incorporating Microgreens in our diet

Microgreens can be used as garnishes or key ingredients in a variety of hot and cold dishes. They can be eaten raw in salads or blended into juices. Wheatgrass juice, for instance, is considered very healthy.
