From our urban farm in Toronto's West End Junction area, these super-fresh broccoli microgreens are grown from organic, non-GMO seeds in locally-produced, high-nutrient organic soil.
Broccoli microgreens are tender with mild broccoli and cabbage flavor. The leaves are brilliant green with a thin whitish stem with light shades of purple.
Broccoli microgreens are rich in vitamins K, C, B6, and E, folate, dietary fiber phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium. They contain high levels of the cellular detoxifier sulforaphane, which may help to prevent cancer and rejuvenate the immune system. Note, sulforaphane is heat-sensitive, so avoid cooking your broccoli microgreens – add them at the last minute to cooked dishes or simply eat them raw in a salad or sandwich.
Use as a pizza topping, in soups, curries, omelets, stir fries, with pasta and other hot dishes. Popular for juicing.
