Shirley Stewart’s Living Greens

Chattanooga, Tennessee

Shirley Stewart's Living Greens grows nutrient dense microgreens that you harvest at home right before you're ready to use them. Researcher Qin Wang, PhD, assistant professor University of Maryland in College Park, conducted a study in 2012 of 25 different microgreens and said “The microgreens were four- to 40-fold more concentrated with nutrients than their mature counterparts."  

Some ideas for including microgreens in your menu include adding them to the top of soup, salads, cooked pizza, burgers, sandwiches or tacos. Add microgreens to omelets, frittatas and smoothies. Garnish any main dish for added nutrition and visual appeal.
