As Green & Good As It Gets
Our in-house-grown microgreens represent the best of healthy, conscious eating.
What Are Microgreens?
It’s simple, really. When salad greens are seedlings with their first tiny leaves, they’re considered microgreens. So, instead of letting that seedling become a head of lettuce, we harvest it, capturing a nutritional bonanza and a fresh, flavourful ingredient.
So Small, So Mighty
Microgreens have been featured in high end dishes since the 1980s, but more recently, research about their nutritional benefits has made them a foodie fascination. Incredibly, multiple studies have shown that, in general, microgreens have more nutrients than they would as fully-grown greens. One tiny seedling packs a major dose of the potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, and antioxidants you need to thrive.
Locally sourced ingredients and plant-forward recipes are part of how we express our values and invest into a healthy community. We want every mouthful to deliver nutrient-dense, zero-mile- diet, harvested-five-minutes-earlier goodness. That’s why we take exceptional care with how we grow our microgreens. Studies show that quality soil, climate controls, and carefully scheduled doses of water and light impact the nutritional value of microgreens. When you stop by our open- concept kitchen, you can see it for yourself.
