Broccoli microgreens have a robust peppery bite that is reminiscent of mature broccoli. They have a soft and light texture and overall a more delicate appearance than broccoli sprouts, with small, bright green leaves and thin white stems.
Broccoli microgreens are superfoods boasting a rich source of antioxidants, including sulforaphane, a compound found in cruciferous vegetables that has been linked to many health benefits.
Add them to salads for a nutritional and flavor boost. They’re also great as a garnish on soups, sandwiches, and pasta dishes, or mixed into omelets. We love to use them for smoothies and pesto.
Growing your broccoli microgreens is easy, affordable, and a great way to have a continuous supply of this superfood. You only need a shallow tray, quality soil, broccoli seeds, a sunny windowsill, or a grow light.
