Throw some microgreens in a smoothie and you are getting a huge nutritional punch.
My favorite microgreen mix is this spicy mix.
The spicy mix is just a mix that includes radish seeds and mustard seeds. You simply are harvesting them when they get to the length in this picture below – that is what makes them a microgreen!

You can also grow bean sprouts to throw in stir fries.
