Microgreens– often called ‘Vegetable Confetti’ - are an exciting,colourful, gourmet alternative to sprouting and very popular amongst gourmet chefs. They are halfway in size between sprouts and baby greens, harvested usually within 2 weeks of sowing. They are commonly grown in seedling trays and differ from sprouts in that they are grown in sunlight and harvested with scissors when there are two or more true leaves.
Microgreensinclude many of the same leafy greens as those used for salad mixes but are cut at a smaller stage; but also more unique varieties that are chosen for theircolour,flavourand texture. They are eaten as thin, delicate plants - as miniature variations on salad greens and herbs. They provide texture andcolourwhen used as garnish, or excitingflavourswhen used as part of salad mixes. While sprouts are well known for their health benefits they are not as famous for theirflavour-Microgreensare both healthy and a taste sensation.
