We have talked a lot about the process of growing microgreens but have rarely given you a glimpse of how we use them. Our new Grow to Eat kits provide a great vehicle for growing microgreens and this particular tray has our tasty salad mix (broccoli, kale, arugula, kohlrabi and cabbage). This particular tray was ready to be harvested at 8 days from seed to our table.
We made a southern style ham and bean soup (leftover christmas ham bone) with a kale and red cabbage salad. My son and I used half of the tray to garnish both the soup and salad to get our dose of microgreens. Incidentally, we harvested and used the remaining half on our salad tonight.
Our self watering trays make for really great way to grow microgreens. We take a 4-6 serving per tray measure depending on the crop. We are creating deluxe home kits that will give you 2 servings a day with continuous production (5 growing systems) one that gives you 4-6 servings a day (10 growing systems) depending on your family size. Both kits include a supplemental LED grow light that we use to actually grow out our trays. Kits will be available this weekend in our store.
Our self watering microgreen Grow to Eat kits are being used in many restaurants and resorts in Mumbai, Maui and soon coming to Moscow. We are offering a starter kit with supplies and an LED grow light that can be used to create an eye catching display of your fresh microgreen crops waiting to use.
The introduction of freshly grown microgreens right in your establishment can make quite a statement to your customers. Fresh and clean microgreens to give them the finest in taste and nutrition. Zero miles and farm to fork rolled into one!
This kit contains 10 self watering growing trays (reusable), enough supplies to grow out 30 trays of assorted microgreens, "rain" head bottle topper for moistening the seeds for initial germination, seed spreader for ease of seeding, one 7" LED grow light that could be put over 2-3 trays for display purposes and grow lighting. We will provide detailed instructions and ideas for display. Contact us directly for custom orders and consultation for your particular installation.
Large installations like the Andaz Delhi have several hundred trays going at once that allows their chefs to have access to the finest nutrition and visual components for their customers. Join the Grow to Eat revolution and up the bar for nutrition and visual highlights to your dishes!
