The Ultimate Guide to Microgreens
I’ve been getting lots of great questions about how to store your microgreens and what to do with them. This hadn’t really even crossed my mind as addressing since they’re so commonplace in my household - so I apologize for the lack of info!
First off: Storage. Microgreens can be picky little buggers, but we specifically grow varieties that tend to be heartier and last longer. They like it cool, but not too cold They like some moisture but not too much humidity. They like some air and circulation but definitely not too much. The simplest and the best way I’ve found to store them is inside the bag that I deliver them to you in with the top closed… as-is.
To extend their life even further (like, several weeks), store them in an airtight container in your fridge. Remove them from the fridge for 15 mins or so every few days and give them a little fluff up, so they won't compact.Whatever you do, do NOT place them in the coldest part of your fridge where the cold air pours in. This will make them wilt overnight.Now, what to do with them? Absolutely everything! We eat microgreens on top of avocado toast, bruschetta, hamburgers, sandwiches, soups, stews, and chili. We throw handfuls on top of pizza, omelets, into smoothies and juices, salads. The list can go on forever! They are literally the simplest way to add extra veg into every meal. No washing or prep work required (our microgreens are grown from organic seed stock and never sprayed with anything at all - so they’re super-clean). The photo here is my favorite lunch: gluten-free sourdough toasted in avocado oil, topped with organic tomatoes, burrata cheese, any type of microgreens I have on hand, then drizzled with olive oil and balsamic glaze.
Literally, just grab some and put it on whatever food you’re eating. You will feel the nutrient-dense power packed into these seemingly tiny plants. I feel a little more satiated and a little more energized with every meal I incorporate them into.
