Learn to grow Microgreens!
Edible Routes bring to you a workshop where you can learn all about growing microgreens and become an expert gardener at home with Kapil Mandawewala.
What are microgreens?
Microgreens are nutrient-packed, flavor-rich mini versions of commonly eaten greens and vegetables like spinach, alfalfa, mustard, radish and broccoli. They’re the post-sprout, pre-adulthood stage of a plant that gourmet chefs like to use as edible jewellery for their dishes. But what’s more important is that they’re super easy to grow and packed with nutrients! For example, red cabbage micros contain 6x more Vitamin C and 40x more Vitamin E than full-grown leaves. Best of all, growing microgreens requires minimal space, sunshine, time, and what’s more, you’ll have your first harvest in just 5-10 days. They add colour, taste and freshness to salads, soups and sandwiches or you can whizz them into your smoothies. In this workshop, you learn everything you need to know to start growing microgreens at home and using them in your dishes.
What’s included: Detailed instructions on growing microgreens at home plus hands-on activities.
Take-home microgreens kit (includes a basket, soil mix, seeds and recipes)
