What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are the tiny green cotyledon leaves of plants for example Rocket, Peas, Curly Leaf Cress, Beetroot and Radish that are harvested at their seedling stage. When consumed at a young age these gourmet miniature leaves are so nutrient-dense, their nutritional benefits are substantially higher than the fully developed adult plant. They are known for their high levels of vitamins, antioxidants and weight loss benefits. The flavour of Microgreens are very distinct and unique. They can be described as nutty, mild to tangy, peppery and even spicy.
Don't they look just great, adding a totally different visual to what's on the plate? There are lots of added bonuses as many types of flowers supply a wealth of key nutrients necessary for good health. The vivid colors of edible flowers indicate the presence of beneficial compounds called phytonutrients, flavonoids and antioxidants. In fact they also supply vitamin C along with a good dose of potassium. Regardless of this bonus we just love the vibrancy and joy they deliver.
Here is a selection of markets and restaurants where you can both purchase and experience our micro greens and edible flowers.
