Microgreens are essentially seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs. They are young vegetable greens that fall somewhere between sprouts and baby leaf vegetables. They have an intense aromatic flavor and concentrated nutrient content and come in a variety of colors and textures.
Studies have shown that microgreens are loaded with nutrients and vitamins. Like their full-grown counterparts, the levels of these nutrients vary across the wide array of microgreens. Microgreens vary in taste, which can range from neutral to spicy, slightly sour, or even bitter, depending on the variety. Generally speaking, their flavor is considered strong and concentrated.
