Dill is a highly aromatic herb. It makes a beautiful microgreen which will brighten the flavour and appearance of your meals. Dill takes a little longer to grow than most microgreens, but it will be worth the wait.
How to grow:
1. Sprinkle seeds on a moist hemp mat or tray filled with soil.
2. Leave uncovered.
3. Once the seeds have germinated, keep the tray in a well-lit spot.
4. Water occasionally.
4. Harvest as you eat them when and the stems are at least 2cm tall, on days 14-21.
We love to use dill microgreens to add or reinforce dill, fennel or anise flavours. You can also pop them in a pesto or dressing. Here are some of our favourite recipes work perfectly with these microgreens:
Pierogi are delicious Polish dumplings, and dill microgreens are a great garnish for them.
You can substitute the dried dill for fresh microgreens, or keep the recipe as is and pop them on top.
Carrot, avocado and dill - a great combination. Use microgreens instead of or as well as the herbs in this recipe.
