Roasted Autumn Vegetables
Microgreens have intense flavors, color and crisp textures and are often served as a garnish in high-end restaurants. The flavor, color and nutritional benefits are highly variable, depending on the type of seeds used. If you find you don’t enjoy one variety, keep trying. There are many options from which to choose.
Suggestions for using microgreens
- As a salad-use them in place of other lettuces atop slices of citrus or add them to a mixed greens salad. Because they have strong flavors start with a dressing such as a light vinaigrette.
- Top a pizza-put a cup of microgreens on top of a pizza (homemade, frozen or takeout).
- Stir into soup just before serving or have diners stir them into their own bowl at the table.
- Use microgreens as a replacement for other types of lettuces on sandwiches. Remember that flavors are intense so start with a small amount and work your way up.
