Microgreen and Cucumber Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette
This is one of my favorite things to make with radish and leek microgreens but it really tastes great with any variety. To mix it up sometimes I like to go heavy on the lime and add a little cilantro. A bit of chili paste or fresh jalapano is lovely in there too! For extra color and crunch add some shaved carrots and purple cabbage. This is a delicious and simple base that you can get creative with!
Warm Eggs and Broth Over Microgreens
This is a simple nutritious soup that is great for a cold winter day! Here I am using a rich venison broth that I made by boiling deer bones for a couple of days. This makes for a very rich and hearty soup. I like to cook the eggs so that the Yolk is still runny. If you prefer them hard then add another minute or two cooking time. Sometimes if I am using a thinner stock I will add a little collagen powder. Any stock will work including instant bullion though I would reduce the Bragg's or Soy Sauce by half. My boyfriend likes to add kimchi to the broth at the end of cooking. I like to add a squeeze of lime juice. For a variation try adding some black beans to the broth before you add the egg!
This recipe is so simple but people still ask me for it sometimes. I think that the key to this dressing is using really great balsamic vineger. If you don’t have a favorite balsamic, I suggest you try different kinds and see whats out there! I like to use a thick, black, sweet balsamic. Some are thinner and more translucent and I often find them too acidic. For party’s I like to make a big batch using a large handful of each microgreen variety with goat cheese crumbles sprinkled on top. Top it with your favorite protein for dinner!
