Microgreens are ready for harvesting. These are the young seedlings of vegetables and herbs that are powerfully nutritious. When harvested while petite, right after germination, they have a tremendous concentration of phytochemicals, nutrients we need in a healthy diet. In fact, while young and small, these seedlings contain more healthy nutrients than the mature plants. Microgreen seeds from nurseries come in mild and spicy mixes. Very rich in anti-oxidents, vitamins C, E and K, beta-carotene and lutein, they also taste crisp and delicious as salad with a brushing of olive oil and balsamic, or as a garnish on soups and stews.
