Sunflower Microgreens

In winter we don’t really have much fresh greens to eat, but we can try microgreens. There is a large variety we can choose from and they are so easy to grow. I choose to grow this time the sunflower microgreens and they are delicious. It seems to me that they grow relatively slow, but they are juicy and have a taste similar to fresh raw sunflower seeds.

You can harvest all at once, or just cut them when needed as long as they are still in the “two-leaves” stage. Mine are not all sprouted at the same time so I just cut and use them as they grow. They are delicious in salads or spread on top of a sandwich. I use them on my sandwiches as they are not enough to make a salad šŸ™‚ Maybe next time I’ll use some more seeds in order to have more sprouts at the same time, but for now this will do.

Do you grow microgreens and if you do what type do you prefer?

    I’m using cress these days. I sprinkle them over any dishes (potatoes, beans, pasta…)

      Cress was my first attempt to grow microgreens, years ago, but they are a bit too spicy for my girl, so I looked for something more pleasant for her taste šŸ™‚

    Sunt mai usor de cumparat din magazin. Stiu, nu este acelasi lucru dar este mai usor :))

    Si eu am plantute din astea crescute fara pamant. Imi pare rau ca nu prea am avut timp sa incerc mai multe tipuri de seminte.
