All Microgreens Are Grown to Order.
Micro Cilantro is a young, tiny, edible version of the well-known herb and is harvested approximately 14-21 days after sowing. Micro Cilantro is one of the most popular microgreens currently on the market today. Favored for its peppery, pungent flavor, Micro Cilantro has become widespread as a garnish for its ease of use and ability to add flavor, texture, and visual appeal to any dish.
Cilantro microgreens have a slightly lower concentration of vitamin C than an orange. Cilantro microgreens contain very high levels of the carotenoids lutein/ zeaxanthin, violaxanthin and beta carotene, which are fat soluble antioxidants important for organ function and protecting cellular structures from damage.
How To Use
Micro Cilantro leaves are best suited for raw preparations, specifically as a garnish, as they will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat. They feature a bright, sweet, and spicy flavor without the soapy, bitter characteristic that mature cilantro can develop. Micro Cilantro leaves are most commonly used in Mexican, Indian, Thai, and Chinese cuisines. They can be sprinkled on top of egg rolls and spring rolls, used to add a bright flavor to lobster and crab, mixed into polenta, or even chopped into salsa. Micro Cilantro pairs well with avocado, carrots, zucchini, tomato, coconut milk, citrus, ginger, mint, lemongrass, chile peppers, yogurt, chicken, lamb, and white fish. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container in the refrigerator and should be added only at the very final stage of finishing a dish.
