Cilantro, Radish and Basil Microgreens

Easy to grow, great tasting microgreens! These are the microgreens I grew and harvested this week.

Radish Microgreens

I love microgreens! They are a tasty addition to any salad, a perfect garnish for scrambled eggs and casseroles, and a great addition to wraps. Above, Radish microgreens are pictured. These are probably one of the easiest microgreens to grow, and they have a great spicy radish taste. They are perfect added to salads, sandwiches and wraps because they add a little zip, without being too spicy.

Basil Microgreens
Basil microgreens are slow to germinate and seem to grow low to the soil. They have a delightful fragrance, but are a bit laborious to harvest. Radish microgreens grow taller, where the basil microgreens seem to hug the soil. They are delicate, but so flavorful.

Cilantro Microgreens
And what is not to love about cilantro! And these cilantro microgreens are amazing! Can't wait to sprinkle some on my scrambled eggs, refried beans and salsa at breakfast tomorrow. Yum!
