Microgreens: The new superfood you grow in your own kitchen!
Microgreens are young plants that are harvested a few weeks after germination.

Microgreens truly are the new superfood.
Chefs and gardeners around the country are discovering that these easy-to-grow plants can be raised in the convenience of your own kitchen in a few weeks' time. And the range of flavor profiles is amazing—from spicy radishes or daikon to fresh-from-the-farm corn flavor in miniature corn microgreens.
Sal Gilbertie gives you all you need to know to growithese delicious plants. He walks you through many of the most popular varieties, explaining growing specifics and flavor profiles. He then provides fabulous recipes for enjoying your harvest in salads, soups, main courses, and much more.
