How To Cook With Microgreens

  •  Use Microgreens as a Salad Topping!
    Microgreens are a perfect addition to any salad. The combination of textures and flavors can really take your salad to the next level. You can use almost any type of microgreen in a salad, but if you’re looking for something unique, try using pea shoots or sunflower shoots for an added crunch. You can also mix and match different varieties to create your own custom blend.
  • Cook with Microgreen Pesto!
    Pesto is one of the most versatile sauces out there, and it tastes great on just about anything from pasta to pizza to sandwiches. You can use almost any type of microgreen in a pesto recipe, but some popular choices include arugula, cilantro, kale, and basil. Just combine your favorite microgreens with olive oil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, nuts (optional), lemon juice (optional), and salt and pepper in a food processor until it reaches your desired consistency. Voila! You have yourself a delicious pesto sauce that will add flavor and nutrition to any dish.

Stir Fry! Stir fry is another great easy way to incorporate microgreens into your cooking routine. Start by sautéing garlic, onions, and other vegetables in oil over medium-high heat until they start to soften before adding your favorite microgreen variety (arugula works well here). Cook for another 2 minutes before adding soy sauce or other seasonings as desired. Than Serve! The result? A flavorful stir fry that packs a nutritious punch!
