How to use Microgreens
Microgreens go with everything because of the many vibrant flavors and the complete lack of work involved.
'Ole faithful: Put a pile of Microgreens on something, or put something on a pile of Microgreens.
But there are endless possibilities...
They're great on sandwiches and in salads.
You can drop them in a hot soup right before you serve it.
They're great beddings for entrees and toppings for entrees.
They're perfect for smoothies because they're tender enough not to require juicing.
Or you could literally just eat them like a bag of chips.
Below are some examples for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but our customers are the ones with the best ideas.
They're just so creative!

Getting the pictures is one of my favorite parts of this business. We're also collecting recipes for our very own MicroLeaf Farms Microgreens Recipe Book, and I'll let you know as soon as it's ready.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Use Spicy Radish Microgreens in an omelet.
Substitute Broccoli or Brassica Mix Microgreens for the english muffin or the pork roll in your Eggs Benedict. (I recently send everyone an email with my exhaustive Eggs Benedict ideas.)
Have a bowl of sunflower shoots with maple syrup.
Sprinkle micro-fenugreek on French toast!
Microgreens make great salads and snacks.
They're fantastic toppings for pizza or enchiladas, anything baked. That's because Microgreens toast well.
Use them creatively in hot soups. "Garnish" if you must, but my favorite thing is to bed the bowl with Microgreens and pout the soup on top. I also learned from a Jamacan Chef that Microgreens can be stirred gently into a hot soup right before it's served.
My go-to snack might impress you less... I take a small handful of Microgreens, lay it on a couple layers of sliced lunch meat, and roll it up. Maybe pour a few drops of olive or MCT oil on them.
That last idea is going to seem appealing to people who like to eliminate carbs, like me. But for others, nix the meat and use a wrap, or a large green leaf like collards.
Wilt some Pea Shoots into your pasta.
Or!.. Use the Sunflower Microgreens as a raw pasta substitute.
Lay your tuna steak across a bed of Peas or Sunnies.
Top your oysters with specialty varieties like Smokey Red Cabbage.
Use a variety of microgreens underneath your stew instead of mashed potatoes for a low-carb shepherd’s pie. (similar to our soup trick above)
...Use your imagination.
There are many ways to eat them.
And if your imagination needs a little help, don't worry!
We'll give you plenty to think about as we go along. Go ahead and try all those ideas and let me know how it goes. Don't forget to send pictures 😉
