Radish microgreens are now something I have on almost every savoury meal. For one, they are so delicious. Not on their though weirdly as they are quite spicy, you know, that wasabi, radish, mustard spicy.
But, added to eggs, pasta, curries, dahls or salads etc, they really add that punch and enhance ANY meal! They lose the spiciness eaten with other things but leave an awesome zing in your mouth. "Like my tongue had a baby with a sunrise" (Free Guy).
But that is not the only reason to eat heaps of these delicate little shoots. They are sooo nutritious, they are amazing for great digestion.
These are seriously powerful little greens. Not only do they contain vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, they also deliver calcium iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. But that’s not all. Radish sprouts are rich in essential amino acids and chlorophyll which helps bind toxins and freshen the system and give good cancer-fighting properties. They also contain a lot of fibre to help bowel health and feed the good bacteria in the gut.
I also love how every meal feels nutrient dense now even if I don't cook or use a lot of other vegetables in it. Just by popping a handful of radish microgreens on, I'm getting all the enzymes, vitamins etc I need!
