Indoor Gardening : Pea Shoots (Microgreens)

You may have encountered these guys at the farmers market or at the salad greens section of your health food store: pea shoots!

WHAT ARE THESE?

They are microgreens, young shoots just a few days old. They look & sound fancy…But they’re so easy to grow! So why not grow your own? You’ll be sure it’s a 100 % fresh and organic. Beware though, they grow super fast! You can get some seeds at Botanical Interests, as well as other places.

WHAT DO THEY TASTE LIKE?

They taste like the Spring on your plate and…like peas!

WHAT ABOUT THE HEALTH BENEFITS?

Pea shoots are highly nutritious. They are rich in vitamin C & vitamin A, and also contain a significant amount of folic acid. For more details, go HERE (they also have some recipes).
