In the USA people know and love them, over here they are one of the latest fashions in cooking: micro greens or micro leaves, the very young, first small leaves of broccoli, radish, cress, mizuna, kale, and a number of other vegetables. Some of these little energy bombs full of vital agents can be found at farmer’s markets, but they are also easy to grow at home. They will readily thrive on the window sill or balcony. A few flower pots, earth or substrate, and the right seeds will suffice. The first »real« leaves should be harvested, those that grow shortly after the seed leaves. The recipes prove how tremendously they can enrich the kitchen – be it colourful salads, wraps and sandwiches or aromatic soups, pasta, and risotto dishes, as well as smoothies and – surprisingly – even sweet dishes. Including all the necessary practical information on cultivation, plus 25 portraits ft he various types, from amaranth to wheat.
