                                                              Mizuna Microgreens                                                

Microgreens are tiny, delicate and incredibly flavourful young plants that are harvested while tiny, tender, and tasty. They are intensely flavorful and are used as garnishes, toppings, and also provide bursts of flavor in fresh salads, sandwiches, soups, and vegetable dishes.  They have been touted to be 'packed' with nutrients however, this has not yet been scientifically proven.  They certainly have the same nutrient content as their larger counterpart, tho.  My favorite method of using them is on a sandwich with fresh tomato and cucumber.  Delicious!

The mustards are spicy and hot.  They are very good with curries or just on their own.  They certainly add a zing to salads, too.
