Micro Greens

One of my favorite culinary medicine applications is growing and -serving- micro greens. Planting and harvesting them yourself is such a great way to introduce a novel food into your diet. They are easy to grow and are ready at a moments notice for any meal or snack.

Micro-green pea shoots. If you look closely, you can see the micro-greens are being harvested with a knife. Seed peas are soaked in water overnight and then allowed to grow. They are harvested when two leaves appear. Serve as salad, in smoothies or as a nutritious garnish.
