They are incredibly nutrient dense, delicious, easy to grow, and very pretty too, making any dish you create look like it’s from a fancy restaurant. Microgreens are a great way to get some extra greens, especially if you have someone in your family, (or maybe it’s you) that refuses to eat their veggies.
