Beet Microgreen Flavor and How to Use Them
The flavor of beet microgreens is most commonly referred to as earthy. The flavor is also very similar, if you can believe it, to young beets.
It’s best to add beet microgreens to salads after you’ve dressed the salad. They just look better than way, oil based dressings mat them down and they aren’t as attractive.
The texture is crisp but juicy, especially if used before the first true leaves form.
They have the flavor to stand up to other ingredients like garlic, onions, and chives.
Beet microgreens are most commonly use raw in salads, on sandwiches or as garnishes.
