Hydrofresh Hydroponics - Red Cabbage Microgreens
Grown hydroponically, Micro Red Cabbage is very small in size, averaging 5-7 centimeters in length, and has broad, flat, and heart-shaped leaves attached to thin, pliable stems. The dark green leaves are smooth and have even, rounded edges that are lined with a deep purple hue. There are also dark purple, central veins that connect to the royal purple stem. Micro Red Cabbage is crisp and tender with a fresh, green, and earthy, peppery flavor.
Micro Red Cabbage is available year-round. Micro Red Cabbage contains vitamin C and K, potassium, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, and antioxidants.
Micro Red Cabbage greens are best suited for raw applications as their delicate nature cannot withstand high heat preparations and heavy dressings. They should be added as a finishing element to dishes and can be sprinkled over soups, salads, stews, grilled vegetables, and meat dishes. Micro Red Cabbage pairs well with citrus, nuts, garlic, shelling beans, mushrooms, ginger, fennel, shallots, apples, avocados, farro, quinoa, meats such as chicken, beef, and sausage, eggs, cheeses, and light-bodied vinegar. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
