While sprouting seeds need to germinate quickly so the seeds don’t rot, microgreens can be planted just like any other herb or vegetable seeds. That means that seeds with longer germination requirements can still be grown as microgreens. Think of peas, beets, kale, and any other edible greens.
It’s useful to learn how to grow microgreens, because you can grow them indoors all winter for a nutritious source of fresh vegetables. They’re just so unusual, with a delicious flavour you would never expect without trying them. Unlike many other types of microgreens, these are large and substantial, and they work really well with any kind of dressing.
