Micro Chef’s Blend is a mixture of microgreens and micro flowers that vary in shapes, colors, textures, and flavors. The small leaves average 5-7 centimeters in length and range in color from bright green to dark purple to a blend of both purple and green. The flower petals are also small in size and can be yellow, red, violet, or purple. The flat and pliable leaves are smooth and can be round, oval, heart-shaped, deeply-lobed, or slender with smooth or tapered edges. The Micro Chef’s Blend is crisp and tender with green, earthy, and herbal flavors mixed with sweet, citrus, and peppery notes.
Micro Chef's Blend is available year-round.
Micro Chef’s Blend is a combination of herbs, greens, and flowers that all have varying textures, colors, and flavors. Grown in greenhouses that provide ample natural sunlight and good air circulation, the tender greens are young, edible plants that are a part of a line of specialty greens grown by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California. Micro Chef’s Blend greens are harvested 14-21 days after sowing and are commonly used by chefs as a garnish to accent a variety of culinary dishes.
Micro Chef’s Blend contains some vitamins A, C, E, and K, potassium, calcium, and iron.
Micro Chef’s Blend greens are best suited for raw applications as their delicate nature, and tender texture cannot withstand high heat applications. They are most commonly used as a garnish and can be floated on cream-based soups, stews, and curries or sprinkled on top of steak, salads, or even sushi. Micro Chef’s Blend is extremely versatile and can be incorporated into a variety of appetizer and main dishes. Micro Chef’s Blend pairs well with meats such as steak, poultry, veal, lamb, pork, and fish, potatoes, tomatoes, grains such as quinoa and rice, orzo, squash, carrots, and hard and soft cheeses. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
Microgreen mixes such as the Micro Chef’s Blend have increased in popularity with chefs to add fresh flavors, textures, and visual appeal to dishes without additional preparation. Chefs can easily garnish dishes quickly, and this blend provides a mixture of flavors that can add depth and layers. This blend is also unique because it is a combination of both microgreens and micro flowers which creates an unusual and aesthetically attractive mixture. The Micro Chef’s Blend is grown at Fresh Origins Farm, the leading national producer of both common and unique greens and uses the mild and sunny Southern California climate to produce healthy crops with bold, exceptional flavors.
Micro Chef’s Blend was first developed in the mid-1990s and early 2000s by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California as a part of the growing microgreens movement. Today Micro Chef’s Blend is available through select partners of Fresh Origins Farm, such as Specialty Produce, and are found across the United States.
