Microgreen Wrap

Nothing shouts “lunch time!” like a refreshing wrap, especially when it’s loaded with nutrient-dense microgreens! Today we’re sharing a simple way to make a veggie wrap, using three ingredients for the filling: microgreens, cucumber, and dairy-free cheese. ALL of which are locally grown or made!

There are a lot of microgreens and shoots to choose from. Each offers a very different flavour profile, from sweet to lemony to nutty to spicy. Fully mature broccoli has a completely different nutritional make-up than radish. So too do these microgreen varieties, although they are all considered high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In fact, studies have shown that microgreens actually have significantly higher nutrient densities than their mature leaves! That makes them a great healthy option to add into your daily eating.
