Say hello to micro-greens!
These stylish and nutrient-packed little flavour-bombs have been a valuable ingredient with chefs for many years, giving vibrant textures and excitement to a wide variety of dishes and smoothies etc.
Now we feature them as much more than just a garnish (though they’re still terrific for that, of course!) and we’re creating many exciting micro-greens recipes in their own right.
These early leaves are loaded with nutrients like vitamins C, E and K, lutein and caroteine in much greater concentrations than in the equivalent mature leaves. Those mature leaves are important for providing the fibre etc that our bodies need, so it’s not a question of mature-or-micro: enjoy plenty of both!
A bit about me…
I’m Ross Pavey, a Sussex chef who’s been creating and cooking with micro-greens for more than twenty years. Now I’ve started to farm them myself, and I’m discovering even more about just how good they can be for us all when they’re used raw or cooked in all sorts of ways.
