Sunflower Shoots ~ Microgreens Delicious nutty sunflower taste in a fresh crunchy shoot! Excellent source of protein, vitamins B6 & E, calcium and more. Add to salads, sandwiches, smoothies. Or just as a healthy snack to munch on. Versatile and delicious. Microgreens are fresh, vibrant & nutrient dense shoots grown to the cotyledon or first “true leaf” stage. Eaten at this point research has shown they are to be abundantly more nutritious (up to 40X!) than the full grown version of the vegetable. Super clean, plant-based pure nutrition in a tiny shoot! Serve raw in salads & sandwiches, or toss into omelets, rice bowls, pasta, pesto or stirfrys at the last second. You can add them to your smoothies or just eat them as a snack; they taste great and add amazing natural energy to your diet (high source of protein, vitamins & minerals!).
