Micro Cabbage Chinese is comprised of 1 to 2 small leaves attached to a slender stem, averaging 5 to 7 centimeters in length. The delicate green leaves have a heart-shaped appearance with uniform, curved edges. The surface of the leaves is smooth, pliable, broad, and flat. The leaves are also attached to a narrow pale green stem, contributing to the microgreen’s crisp, succulent, and tender consistency. Micro Cabbage Chinese has a neutral, sweet flavor, milder than full-grown varieties, and bears additional green and vegetal nuances.
Micro Cabbage Chinese is available year-round.
Micro Cabbage Chinese consists of young, edible seedlings that are a part of a line of specialty microgreens grown by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California. The delicate greens provide a mild, vegetal, and sweet flavor and were specially curated to provide chefs with a unique, edible garnish. Microgreens are generally harvested 1 to 2 weeks after sowing and are gathered at the peak of their growth cycle to ensure optimum flavor and nutritional properties. Micro Cabbage Chinese contributes clean flavors, textures, and whimsical shapes to culinary dishes without overpowering the plate's main components. The neutral microgreens are also versatile, capable of being used in a wide variety of dishes, and the greens elevate the dining experience by presenting clear flavor notes in small, controlled amounts.
Micro Cabbage Chinese is an excellent source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that protects the cells against free radicals by strengthening the immune system and reducing inflammation. The microgreens are also sources of vitamins K and B6 and provide lower amounts of potassium, magnesium, and calcium. It is important to note that the vitamins and minerals are found primarily within the leaves and not in the stems of the microgreens. Growing conditions also significantly impact the nutritional content, and Fresh Origins cultivates their microgreens in a natural setting, an ideal climate for healthy, optimal greens.
Micro Cabbage Chinese is best suited as an edible garnish and provides a mild flavor and light crunch to savory dishes. The tender greens are primarily used to accent Asian cuisine and can be sprinkled over noodle and rice dishes, tossed into stir-fries, or floated over soups and stews. Micro Cabbage Chinese can also be garnished over dumplings, topped over dishes with kimchi for added cabbage flavor, or layered into fresh spring rolls. Beyond Asian-inspired dishes, Micro Cabbage Chinese can be utilized to impart a mild, sweet taste in American or fusion cuisine, and it can be used as a bed of greens or tossed into salads. The microgreen’s neutral flavor will complement both mild and spicy preparations. Micro Cabbage Chinese pairs well with mushrooms, carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, herbs such as parsley, cilantro, basil, and mint, aromatics including garlic, ginger, lemongrass, and galangal, and meats such as beef, pork, poultry, turkey, duck, and fish. Micro Cabbage Chinese will generally keep 5 to 7 days stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
Micro Cabbage Chinese is a popular edible garnish used to elevate dishes served throughout the Lunar New Year. During the festival, cabbage is symbolic of prosperity and is incorporated into a wide variety of dishes, including a filling for dumplings or mixed into stir-fries, soups, and side dishes. The Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or Chinese New Year, is one of Asia's most significant celebrations. In some countries, the festival can last up to 15 days, and festivities include elaborate meals, family gatherings, lion dances, fireworks, and parades. Food is also an important element of the holiday, and consuming specific ingredients that contain significance is thought to bring good fortunes for the new year. Micro Cabbage Chinese combines traditional flavors with a modern twist, providing a targeted cabbage flavor in easy-to-use, precise amounts. The tiny greens can be individually placed on dumplings, turnip cakes, and spring rolls, or they can be neatly piled or sprinkled over larger meat and vegetable preparations. Micro Cabbage Chinese are also suitable for take-out or catered Lunar New Year’s dinners. The microgreens can be packaged in a to-go container, and once the dish is ready to be served, it can be quickly decorated with the greens to impress dinner guests.
