What is this

Those who know me best are aware of my many oddities. One that I haven’t shared with anyone else though has been my long-time fascination with microgreens.

These are the first shoots of plants that pack great flavor and are more nutritious by weight than their full size counterparts.  Tiny and edible greens that add beauty and flavor to dishes, microgreens have effectively remained elusive to me, up until recently.

Imagine my delight when I discovered a new urban farming operation right in our backyard, Grow Local. I was even more excited to learn of their subscription available, year round. This week we received our first box of microgreens, mushrooms, and some beautiful dark green and leafy Swiss chard.

Having never cooked with these green little sprouts, this mushroom omelette with microgreens seemed like a good place to start. Basic and easy, you won’t find any processed additives in this dish that is good for any meal of the day.

This mushroom omelette recipe with microgreens was the first thing we’ve made using this type of produce, may I just say it won’t be our last.

We plan on featuring many more dishes from the bounty available at Grow Local and I have a feeling it’s all going to be fresh and delicious. If you’re local to the fox valley region of Wisconsin, do yourself a favor and check out this operation located in Neenah.

If you’re from elsewhere, farmer’s markets are a good place to find this type of produce; you’ll be amazed at what too can do with microgreens.  Get your fresh on and Grow Local.  -Dan

  1. At first I was wondering what microgreens were, then I realized it’s the stuff farmers have been mulching forever and are now charging an arm and a leg for. I’ll have to ask my dad to bring me some before they chop ’em so I can try them in an omelet!

    What a great and healthy breakfast option! I love that this recipe is easy enough to make on a week morning and packed full of protein. Thanks for sharing! Luci’s Morsels | fashion. food. frivolity.

  3. Mushrooms and micro greens?!!! Yes please! That sounds delicious! Omelettes always make me think of my last pregnancy because my husband would make them for me every Sunday for breakfast. I craved them. Your version sounds delicious.

    Hi, Dan! I live in De Forest, WI, so we’re practically neighbors! I share your fascination with microgreens, and I’m always watching out for them at the Dane County Farmer’s Market. This omelette also incorporates one of my other fave ingredients: mushrooms. So it’s going straight to the top of my to-make list!
