Curled Cress Microgreen
Curled Cress also called Garden Cress or Peppergrass. Ruffled leaves have a peppery and refreshing flavor. Used in salad or sandwiches as baby greens, they add texture and visual interest. Curled Cress microgreens are best suited for raw applications as their delicate nature cannot withstand high heat and are most commonly used fresh. Micro Peppercress compliments and cuts through the rich fat content of red meat and creamy cheeses, and is a great addition to seafood, particularly raw dishes such as ceviche because it adds a sweet spiciness to the tangy citrus flavor. They can also be used in salads with milder lettuces like green leaf and Bibb to add an extra kick of flavor, or they can be sprinkled on top of poached eggs. In addition to being used as a garnish, Micro Peppercress can also be mixed into sauces such as pesto, chimichurri, and aioli, vinaigrettes, and marinades. Micro Peppercress pairs well with nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and pistachio, spices and herbs such as mint, parsley, tarragon, chervil, chives, and cilantro, fennel, fig, potatoes, endive, garlic, ginger, shallots, scallion, leeks, sesame, cucumber, eggs, meats such as bacon, roast beef, chicken, steak, salmon, and halibut, shrimp, cream, goat cheese, mascarpone, and olive oil. Float on creamy soups or top steaks. Add a kick to salads and sandwiches!
