HOW TO USE YOUR MICROGREENS


Microgreens are an amazing addition to any dish you want to make. Since you don’t need a lot of microgreens on a dish to add a punch full of flavor, you will find that your microgreens box will last a while. When purchased at the store, many microgreens will last up to a week. Dirt Candy Farm microgreens are harvested fresh weekly, and when stored in a refrigerator (35-40 degrees F), they should last 2 weeks + when the container is properly sealed. After you bring them home, make sure to immediately store them in your refrigerator. To liven them up after storage in your crisper, you can spray them with a little ice cold water or keep a moist paper towel/cloth with them. Keeping the container sealed properly will ensure the longest possible quality. Our microgreens are grown inside of our nursery, watered from above by hand, and contact with soil is minimal/non existent. They are clean, but it is always a good idea to wash your produce before cooking/eating it.

IDEAS FOR USING MICROGREENS

1. Use them as toppings on everything!

Enjoying them on everything including, sandwiches, salads, burgers, and tacos, ensures you give off the appearance you know what your doing in the kitchen ;) Add them to anything you can imagine, and anything that calls for fresh herbs/greens.


2. Salad!

Using such small leafs to make a salad may seem strange, but mixing varieties together and adding olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a little sea salt is an amazing way to enjoy microgreens. The powerful taste of fresh living microgreens can be surprising. If you want to combine microgreens with salads using larger leafs, go for it. Some people like to just throw them in (stem and all), while others prefer to chop them into smaller pieces reducing the length of the stem (but still including the stems for their nice crunch).


3. All egg dishes!

Adding microgreens after you are done cooking/heating eggs ensures the greens don’t wilt (microgreens are very tender). Adding microgreens in an omelette, or on top of any other egg related dish will brighten up/complement all egg dishes.
