Taste - Broccoli microgreens are mild and crunchy with a slightly bitter, savoury after taste.
Uses - We recommend eating broccoli microgreens raw to get the most nutritional value. They work well as part of a salad or in sandwiches and wraps. If added at the end, they're also delicious in dishes like stir fries and risotto.
Health benefits – Broccoli microgreens contain 90x more sulforaphane than fully grown broccoli. Sulforaphane is produced by the plant to deter insects, but happens to be really beneficial for humans. Sulforaphane is also the compound that gives Broccoli its bitter flavour and is thought to be behind the vegetables reported health benefits. Some studies have indicated that it might stop cells from becoming cancerous.
Broccoli microgreens are also bursting with vitamins A, B, C, E and K, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, copper and zinc.
