Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Microgreens, lettuce, and asparagus. Use microgreens to top everything from tacos and salads to scrambled eggs, or even avocado toast!

Storage Tip: Asparagus should be stored in the fridge in a glass with one inch of water, and the top covered loosely with a plastic bag. Change the water if it begins to appear cloudy.
Storage Tip: Lettuce and Spinach will store longer if you place a paper towel in the bag with these leafy greens to absorb excess moisture and prevent rotting. However, if you mix up a salad, they won't last long either!
