In my opinion, broccoli is the most nutritional microgreen available and is reported to have cancer-fighting properties.
While broccoli heads take over 100 days to grow, broccoli microgreens grow in just eight days and have the same distinct flavor.
They also have higher nutritional value by weight, and their small size and soft texture require little prep before serving.
