Superfoods to Supercharge your Meals!

It’s coming to the end of January and you may be finding that your energetic enthusiasm for healthy eating at the start of a new year has dipped a little. But not to worry! We’re bringing all the inspiration to give your health – and mind – a boost! These healthy Micro Leaves make great additions to a balanced diet, and work great in salads, as well as garnishes to a range of dishes such as soups, stir-fries and sandwiches.

All of our produce is grown right here in the UK, so you can always expect the freshest ingredients. You can shop our produce online or find your nearest stockist here.

Micro Watercress

Delicious in a wide range of savoury dishes, Watercress is full of vitamins and minerals, and is one of the strongest-tasting salad leaves! Plus, its vibrant green leaves make such a beautiful garnish to any dish. Watercress is full of vitamin A and C, and it’s also a source of folate, calcium, iron and vitamin E. Supporting a healthy and balanced diet, Micro Watercress has numerous health benefits and has been known to be the ‘original superfood’. You can find out more about our wonderful Watercress here.

Micro Red Cabbage

Packed with vitamin C and K, Micro Red Cabbage has a sweet, mildly earthy taste. It makes the perfect garnish for salads, soups or stews and is best suited for raw applications, to keep its heart-shaped leaves intact!

Sunflower Shoots

Crunchy, crisp and nutty, our Micro Sunflower Shoots are perfect in a salad. They have an earthy, fresh, and sweet flavour and provide added texture as a garnish. Sunflower shoots contain amino acids, plus minerals such as iron, magnesium, and calcium. They are particularly high in zinc which has a number of benefits but is particularly known for boosting your immune system – definitely one to try if you’re looking for healthy Micro Leaves!

Micro Broccoli

Micro Broccoli has a crisp, sweet, raw broccoli taste and is a real nutritional powerhouse! They are high in vitamin C, as well as magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc. Plus, did you know that Micro Broccoli can have up to 40 times the number of vitamins and minerals than their mature counterparts? Now that’s impressive!

The Shoot Mix

Why not mix things up and get a selection of shoots? Decorative and flavoursome, the British greens in our Shoot Mix are full of nutrients! In this 100g punnet, you’ll get a mix of Sunflower shoots, Golden pea Shoots, Broccoli Shoots and Micro Red Amaranth. What more could you need? Your salads will be bursting at the seams with vitamins and minerals.
