No garden, No problem! If you've got a windowsill, you've got the space and light necessary to grow a variety of nutrient-rich micro greens. For those who haven't heard the term, micro greens are plants and lettuces that are harvested to eat when they reach about one to two inches high—well before they've grown to full size. To read more about why I always have a batch of micro greens growing and to learn how incredibly easy it is to grow your own, read my article on micro greens in the April issue of Alive magazine.
I'm particularly fond of kale sprouts
Pea shoots are great too!
The article includes some micro green inspired recipes including:
Poached eggs on rye with micro green garnish
Rainbow Trout with Micro Green Sauce
