Microgreens are little edible plants bursting with flavour and the health benefits are stacked in their favour. These mini vegetables are bursting with nutrients, in fact, they are said to contain up to 40 times more than full-grown plants. The best thing is that we have the most amazing microgreens recipes below for you to enjoy.
They not only look awesome on a salad they can also be a key entry level for kids to start growing. Kids find them easy to work with because of their size and they are very fast growing so they don’t have to wait long for results, which is always a good thing with kids.
