Broccoli is a recommended starter microgreen. They are easy to grow and have a deliciously mild, fresh cabbage flavor, and make a great addition to any microgreen salad or garnish.
The leaves are brilliant green. They have a thin whitish stem with light shades of purple.
Broccoli microgreens are a favorite because of their health benefits; they’re an excellent source of sulforaphane and other vitamins and minerals.
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.
Broccoli microgreens are an excellent choice as a base for any microgreens salad, added to salads or eggs just before serving.
However, you can use broccoli microgreens anywhere you would use broccoli florets. Their mild spicy flavor and lack of bitterness make them liked by those who dislike mature broccoli.
