A small amount of leek microgreens goes a long way, as the onion flavor can overpower a dish if used too heavily.

    Leeks are a new microgreen for me and I appreciate being able to try a little bit of seeds. My first batch is just getting started, but there is a high germination rate and all signs are positive – plants look great so far. Excited to try this microgreen in our cooking as a flavorful addition to recipes.
