Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs. Unlike larger herbs and vegetables that take weeks or months to grow, microgreens can be harvested and eaten a week to 10 days after the cotyledon — a part of the embryo within the seed — leaves have developed. Microgreens contain 40x more
nutrients than their fully grown counterparts. Most microgreens are a great source of vitamin A, C, E, and K.
