10 Delicious Ways to Enjoy Microgreens

Salads

Microgreens make fantastic and flavorful salads, on their own or mixed with other greens, with fancy toppings or simply dressed.  Pictured is a mix of microgreens with candied pecans and herbed feta, and this End of Summer Salad.

Soups

If you've never added a handful of fresh microgreens to your bowl of steaming soup before serving, you're in for a treat!  Here is a handful of fresh arugula and cabbage on top of a steaming bowl of noodles, and Butternut Squash Soup with Micro Broccoli.

Sandwiches

Move over, lettuce.  Some new greens are on the block.  Adding microgreens to your favorite sandwich is guaranteed to take it to the next level.  Take this cheeseburger topped with fresh pea shoots, for example, or this yummy looking Hummus Wrap with Radish.

Smoothies and Juice

Microgreens are an easy way to add nutrients to your morning smoothie.  Our kids love a pineapple, banana and microgreen smoothie.  Check these other fantastic ideas, including this Red Microgreen Smoothie, or this Sunflower Sprout Smoothie.

Pizza

Add color, flavor and pizzazz to your pizza with a handful or two of microgreens, either before or after baking. Shown here is a mouthwatering pizza with sausage, blue cheese and spicy salad mix, and this Pesto, Mozzarella and Arugula Pizza.

Pesto

Yes!  Microgreens make fantastic pesto.  This sweet pea shoot and walnut pesto was so good that our smallest baby Green couldn't get enough! 

Dessert

Think microgreens for dessert is a stretch?  Think again.  We saw this idea here, and couldn't wait to try them!  These chocolate covered sunflower sprouts almost disappeared before we could say "Wait, we need a picture for the website!"  And what about this Strawberry Chocolate Tart?

Breakfast

Microgreens complement eggs amazingly well.  Think frittata, scrambles, eggs benedict, you name it.  Who wouldn't want to wake up to this omelet?  They are also fantastic on avocado toast, if that's your thing.

Sides

You can really get creative here.  Mix microgreens with wild rice, quinoa, even pasta salad.  Pictured here is quinoa salad with microgreens, raisins, apricots and almonds.  This tuna pasta salad with microgreens also looks amazing.

The Unexpected

We made this delicious falafel recipe by substituting red acre cabbage in place of cilantro and parsley in the recipe.  Try adding microgreens to any recipe calling for spinach or kale.  And check out these Savory Green Pancakes with Lime Butter!
