5 Recipes Where Microgreens Shine!

Microgreens are nature’s nutrient powerhouses! These tiny, tender greens are harvested when they are just a few weeks old, making them packed with flavor, nutrition, and a burst of freshness that enlivens any dish. Here are five recipes that highlight the versatility and deliciousness of microgreens:

  1. Microgreen Salad: Combine a mix of microgreens such as arugula, radish, and pea shoots with a simple vinaigrette made of olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and honey. Top it off with some roasted potatoes and toasted nuts for a satisfying and healthy salad that will leave you wanting more.
  2. Avocado Toast with Microgreens: Spread mashed avocado on a slice of toasted bread and crown it with microgreens, sliced radish, and a drizzle of olive oil. This simple yet flavorful breakfast or lunch option is easy to make and packed with nutrients that will energize your day.
  3. Microgreen Pesto: Whip up a batch of delicious and versatile pesto by blending a mix of microgreens, such as basil, broccoli, and cilantro, with garlic, olive oil, nuts, and Parmesan cheese. Use it as a spread on sandwiches, a sauce for pasta, or a dip for veggies.
  4. Microgreen Omelet: Beat eggs with a splash of your milk of choice and season with salt and pepper. Cook on a hot skillet until set, then add a handful of microgreens and some cheese of your choice. Fold the omelet in half and serve with toast or a side salad for a tasty and wholesome breakfast or brunch.
  5. Microgreen Smoothie: Make a quick and nutritious smoothie by blending a handful of microgreens, such as pea shoots, sunflower shoots, kale, or broccoli, with a banana, frozen berries, and a splash of almond milk. A supercharged smoothie like this will start the day off right!
