Micro Medley Mix (50g)
Microgreens are seedlings of herbs and salad greens.
They offer many exciting new textures, colours and flavours. Being so immature, the flavour is exceptionally intense. They are added to salads and used as edible garnishes. Microgreens can be grown from the seed of almost any vegetable and are harvested 7-21 days after planting.
Refrigerate in paper bags or in the crisper. Use within 5-6 days of purchase.
Ways to eat
Use as a garnish with a dish of complementary flavour. Store in refrigerator and add to dishes as a garnish just before serving.
There is little research in New Zealand on the nutritional profile of microgreens but international research suggests that they have higher levels of nutrients such as vitamins C and E and beta carotene compared to the mature plants.
