M is for Microgreens

Microgreens are a wonderful addition to any salad or sandwich. They add a nice crunch, rich flavour, and are full of vitamins. That’s three reasons to love them!

I typically buy microgreens at my local organic grocer. But,I was inspired by Livia Sweets post to try growing my own, and to plant them in vintage tins! Not only do I love, and have too many, tins, but I also love having ways of using them!

I especially love practical ways of re-using them that brighten up my space, and produce delicious treats.

Livia’s tutorial is simple, and is really quick.
