Onion Microgreens are easy to grow and very rich in flavor and nutrients.
It only takes a couple of greens on a sandwich or in a salad to taste the flavor! So, it’s best to start tasting small amounts to gauge how strong they really are!
When chopped, onion microgreens smell strongly of onions and they never make your eyes water, or taste buds burn, even when chopped! Chopping them up creates a wonderful aroma when added to a salad, burger, or steak.
The finished microgreen is a long, slender green similar to miniature chives. You can use micro-onions as an onion bulb substitute for many dishes — fantastic on hamburgers, salads, soups, as garnishes, and more.
A small amount of onion microgreens goes a long way, so don’t use too heavily at first.
Harvest onion microgreens when they reach a height of 2 1/2- to 4-inches.
Onion microgreens will re-grow after harvest! You can get at least two or three cuttings.
The thin green stem will more than not have the remains of the black seed resting at the tip. The seed pod isn’t much of an issue when cooking. If it bothers you, they can be rinsed off with running water.
Onions greens are ready to harvest between 11 and 15 days after sowing.
