One of the most popular microgreens, broccoli microgreens have lots of nutritional value. Very high in vitamin C and A, they also have large quantities of magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc – the essential minerals that most of us are deficient in.
Broccoli microgreens are amazing because they bring along these essential and powerful nutrients just 10-14 days after germination which means a plant the size of a four-leaf clover has more vitamins and minerals than a head of broccoli.
Broccoli microgreens contain the highest amount of sulforaphane available compared to almost any other food. Sulforaphane is a sulphur compound found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, bok choy and cabbage – known for fighting inflammation, cancer prevention, Improved heart health and Improved digestion.
The crunchy texture and unique flavour add freshness to your food. There is no wrong way to eat microgreens, you can simply just snack on a handful of them. Typically, microgreens are added to any salad or sandwich, or your favourite egg scramble, quiche or omelette for a tasty breakfast. If you need to hide the powerhouse veggie (from picky kids), consider ¼ cup of microgreens in a smoothie.
