From our urban farm in Toronto's West End Junction neighbourhood, these super-fresh broccoli microgreens are produced from organic, non-GMO seeds and are grown in Canadian organic soil medium.
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.
