Years ago, when it seemed microgreens punctuated nearly every dish at upscale restaurants, I started growing savory sprouts next to my kitchen sink. With a shallow container, potting soil and an organic seed mix, I was able to grow those trendy microgreens in less than a week, for a fraction of what I might have paid at a store. They can be snipped with scissors when they’re about 1 inch high and tossed on top of salads, meats, fish or virtually any other dish.
My favorite seed mix is “microgreens savory mix” by Botanical Interests. This collection contains 10 fabulous plants, including radishes, beets, mustards and kohlrabi. Botanical Interests offers many options, including a spicy mix of mustard and peppergrass seeds, and another blend of bitter Italian chicories.
